The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) commemorated its annual National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) last 25 to 29 July 2016. NSTW is celebrated every year to feature outstanding accomplishments and personalities in science and technology (S&T).
Having the overall theme “Juan Science. One Nation,” this year’s NSTW was jointly celebrated in regions all over the Philippines. With ECCP Cebu as one of the successful collaborators for DOST Region 7, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines set up an exhibition featuring creations from the Tubigon Raffia Export Development Project.
To highlight material manipulation and innovation, fibers from the Tubigon Loomweavers Multi-Purpose Cooperative were applied onto furniture pieces and accessories. These items showcase the use of natural fibers combined with the product development expertise from our consultant, Cebu-based designer, Debbie Palao.
The exhibition ran from July 27-27, 2016 at the Robinsons Galleria Cebu Atrium, Cebu City.
