Fashion Accessories from Coconut Shell

Sunday, November 29, 2009

Yesterday I met an enterprising woman from San Pablo City, Laguna. Her name is Ms. Edna Palad. She is a much sought-after resource speaker on designing handicrafts and fashion accessories. A graduate of UST school of Fine Arts, she owns a factory in San Pablo and her company is called Red Palm Ventures which is into the production of different items made from coconut by-products. Here are some of her designs from coconut shell:
necklace from coconut shell A necklace
Kid belt made of coconut shell A kid belt
earrings from coconut shell Earrings
bracelet made of coconut shell Bracelet

According to Edna, these export-quality products are very affordable. In order to preserve the uniqueness of each design, they don't produce more than 10 items each unless it is for export.

She also mentioned that she earned the trust of her customers because her company produce items in accordance with specification especially in terms of materials and colors used.

"Marereject din ang orders kung mayroong hindi nasusunod na specification. Kaya ang advise ko sa mga nagnenegosyo, dapat sumunod lagi sa usapan kasi lugi ang aabutin mo kung nagkataon.", she warned.

Mabuhay ka Ms. Edna! Sana lumago ang business mo para mas maraming magtratrabaho sa iyo at makatulong ka sa pagpapaunlad ng bansa.

Ang gaganda ng products di ba? Saka sa halip na maitapon ung mga coconut shells ay napakinabangan pa.

Wow they are all nice....and you are right instead of throwing them away why not make a fashion jewelry out of it...but you know what na missed ko na din yung coconut charcoal iba ang lasa sa sinugbang baboy. Dito gas or electric or other wood charcoal ang gamit pang-grill pero iba talaga ang coconut charcoal sana we can export coconut charcoal ano hehehehe!!

To gege, the accessories were so light. Some of the women who were present actually tried them. Some of them bought.

Manang Kim, see my previous post on this year's best entrepreneurs. One of them is an exporter of coconut charcoal.

Again, my heart's very glad for your visit...
