Those values inspire us to constantly bring out the best Filipino works: to sustain traditional art forms by nurturing respected craftsmen, and to expand our reach and relevance by supporting creations of young upcoming designers, all the while maintaining the highest quality standards and hospitable service that our mother made TESOROS famous for,” she added.
