Aya Fernandez's Top 10 Picks to #WearYourPinoyPride

TV Host and Actress, Social EntrepreneurAya Fernandez

I think I had a slight misconception about “supporting local” when I was a kidーI make sure I have a souvenir to take home whenever I visit the provinces because it makes me remember about the place and the trip...nothing wrong with that! But as I grew up, I learned that it’s also more about a mindful choice on the things that we use, eat, and buy every day. 


Today I’ll share my favorite not only locally made products but also those that help preserve our diverse Filipino pre-Hispanic culture. Not to mention, I flex my Pinoy pride through using these products too! 


These are brands that I know who practice fair trade and really make an effort to reach out to the local communities that make the products. 


Disclaimer: Some products were sent to me by the brands without charge, and some I've just discovered and personally bought myself!

Aya Fernandez's mybest Summary

Just because a brand is local doesn’t mean all the products are manufactured and sourced out locally (nothing against that, though! Just a food for thought). Sometimes supporting local is cheaper, but there may be times that they could cost quite a lot. However, the quality of the product speaks for it!


I hope we are always mindful that every purchase has a crucial impact on the greater Filipino nation. The more people demand local and ethically made products, the more we support the Filipino people and culture. You can say it’s simply one of the ways to show patriotism!


I hope my top ten local products somehow inspired you to learn more about our very rich and diverse Filipino culture! #TangkilikinAngSarilingAtin #SupportLocalPH
