These Local Instagram Shops Are for the Modern Pinay

Imagine a “modern pinay” in her mid-’20s: empowered, social media savvy, a tad-bit tita but also socially aware. Even with all the things happening in the country, she’s passionate about supporting locally-made products from our local farmers or from pop-up bazaars.

Does it sound like you’ve been “seen”? Then you might want to get to know these Instagram shops that let you incorporate local in your wardrobe.

Bayongciaga

Imagine our local woven bayongs out of the wet market and out on the streets—that’s Bayongciaga for you. A witty play of words between a known high-end brand and the Ilonggo phrase “Bayong siya ‘ga,” Bayongciaga puts a modern, stylish twist to bayongs in the form of playful and muted colors, as well as various styles to fit outfits and lifestyle. What’s more, the brand supports local artists for their bag designs and joins in meaningful causes like the Miss Possibilities and I CanServe Foundation Inc.

Top Stop

A modern Filipina look won’t be as it is without a lowkey top that shows you’re in control of your game. Tops from Top Stop is exactly that. They sell loose, muted-colored blouses perfect to pair whatever you’re wearing, wherever you’re going.

The Nap Tribe

Simple and comfortable pieces are on-trend too, and The Nap Tribe have that. The brand redefines clothing in the form of minimalistic culottes and dresses. Think of it as wearing stylish clothes without the tight fit commitment (nobody wants that, Patrice).

Omii Jewelry

Omii Jewelry’s aesthetic is “less is more.” They sell accessories in thin metals with tiny stones or pearls. Their earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings are simple but speak a thousand words. If you ask us, exaggerated jewelry is a thing of the past.

SLO Store

A modern woman cares for the environment and contributes to lesser plastic use. That said, we recommend the SLO Store (Sustainable Living Options) for all of your little needs. They sell sustainable, eco-friendly objects from materials you never knew could be turned into one. Among their must-have products are the reusable produce bag, compostable scrubbers, and tumbler holders.
