The Sandugo Trade Expo started as a provincial fair in 1988, in the Province of Bohol. It is held on the last week of July of each year, when the province celebrates the Annual Sandugo Festival, an event commemorating the historic blood compact between the local chieftain Datu Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legaspi of Spain. For about five years since it started, the fair used to be mounted at the Provincial Capitol grounds, in front of Plaza Rizal. In the ensuing years, it was moved inside the lobby of major hotels in Tagbilaran City, but based on post-fair assessment results, these have not been favorable for Boholano exhibitors because (1) the venues were not easily accessible for both exhibitors and buyers, (2) products displayed were limited only to handcrafted items, and (3) promotion has not been very strong then. Hence, starting 2004, the fair’s location has been moved inside a local mall to give way to accessibility and improved traffic. Over the years, the trade show has invited quite a number of guests, visitors, buyers from across the country and even more established international buyers who have buying agents in the Philippines. Due to its success as a provincial fair, it was up-scaled to a regional fair in 2006, and has since then been included in the calendar of major buyers and visitors. The fair has grown bigger each year, with exhibitors coming in from as far as Cordillera in the north and CARAGA in the south.

Ijp Food Products

Since 1999, we have been familiar to many Boholanos during their fiesta celebrations and tourists as their “pasalubong” needs for being a dependable homemade cookies maker because of our predictable taste, comforting aroma and stable texture of our delicacies. It brought back to the history of the town during the time of the Spaniards when the locals were told to build the now famous Immaculate Concepcion Baclayon Church. It was made of stone blocks and egg whites were used as binding material during the construction. In order for the egg yolks would not be put to waste, the Spaniards taught the locals to make pastries to maximize the leftovers. We were so lucky enough that heirloom recipes were passed down through generations. As time passed by, the quality of the taste has been standardized, the food handling has been based and approved by FDA standards and the packaging materials have been improved to prolong its shelf-life. All of these changes are being done to suit the changing needs of our customers. Because of the good returns, our products were distributed and were sold to any leading supermarkets and souvenir shops in Bohol and in Cebu. The company continuously develops in many aspects to support economic growth, especially the many wives and the less privileged students in the town.



Tubigon Loomweavers Multi-Purpose Cooperative

We are a women led-social enterprise with a passion to create unique raffia woven fabrics using indigenous materials that would-be CURIOSITY PROVOKING by the use of the century old weaving traditions handed down by a generation of artisans in Bohol. In doing so, we are OBSERVANT to the needs of our growing market and we always VALUE privacy on the designs by the buyers and we are SUBSTANTIVE and CALCULATED in our production techniques and we do not do short cuts in producing quality products and on -time deliveries. Our narrative started in 1989 when a group of women folks decided to take charge of their future. While lacking in education, we however are highly skilled loomweavers. Leveraging this traditional and cultural skills to our advantage we organized ourselves into the Tubigon Loomweavers Association. Years passed and we realized we could do better if we are a cooperative, we register ourselves as the Tubigon Loomweavers Multi Purpose Cooperative with the Cooperatives Development Authority. The last twenty-eight (28) years have seen our group evolve from its humble beginnings to being a preeminent weaving house that is in the radar screen of major local and foreign buyers. Our story is undoubtedly inspiring and the narrative is carried further through the loomwoven fabrics that the weavers produce. The fabrics carry their own brand of handmade uniqueness, quality and culture. Traditionally, we produce raffia placemats and fabrics in rolls or yardage. While these products have a robust market, prices are however quite low. This is the essence of why our cooperative partnered with the Department of Trade and Industry which opened a wide array of opportunities for us to include, skills and entrepreneurial trainings, marketing support and assistance, financing, production and equipment to name a few. We use traditional handlooms with bamboo reeds. Basically, this means that the we have a width limitation of 24 inches. The use of bamboo reeds (vis a vis metal reeds) also affected the quality of the weave since the space between dents was inconsistent thus making for a coarser fabric. The acquisition of wider metal-framed looms to the cooperative (72 inch-width) provided us with the opportunity to do finer weave works. This is a big leap on its product and design direction since it could now produce products that met the requirements of the furniture and furnishings market that it wanted to target. Moreover, the use of metal reeds and a more stable handloom meant better quality. The new metal reeds also allowed the weavers to use finer raw materials such as polyester thread, abaca and super fine raffia. Mixing or crossing fine raffia with silk, cotton, polyester created a fluent and soft fabric. Meanwhile, mixing and crossing the usual/traditional raffia with indigenous materials to include but not limited to pandan, abaca, cogon grass, and corn husk created a textured, medium strong and semi-lucent appearance. To date. we have now a total of 56 plant based weavers and 102 community/home-based weavers and ably assisted by 400 raw material suppliers and other support workers doing hand in and in to pursue our passion for excellence to weave the fabric that our buyers need and in doing so weaving also out future.
