Inspired to share
Ria Faust started Sugarcane in 2013, inspired by the indigenous, hand-loomed textiles of the Philippines and the artisans, who uphold the tradition. It reflects the bold aesthetics and tribal patterns of cultural attires she and her daughter have seen throughout their travels. Sugarcane is vibrant and easy dressing for toddlers size 12 months to 5 years.
The weavers are mothers and grandmothers taking care of their families. Their stories resonated with Ria, who is a mom herself. Ria works directly with the weavers by going to rural villages in the Philippines to source fabrics. Sugarcane is her way of supporting other women, connecting back with her motherland, and exploring a new way of using indigenous textiles.
