Three Reasons to Love Domesticity

Wednesday, November 04, 2015
Our home is nowhere near being filled, but through my short journey to date, I have enjoyed shopping for essentials both online and in different malls.

Sometimes I stop and wonder how I could be spending nearly half my meager salary each month on stuff for the house, and yet, our home still looks empty. Haha! But then I realized that it's because most of what we've gotten for our home so far are thoughtfully and lovingly picked. We go for functionality as well as quality, so we're in no rush to just buy whatever's available.

One of the major players in helping me furnish our home (slowly) is Domesticity.


Domesticity was founded by Mariel San Agustin. She used to work for a furniture store in Manila, but since her love for the industry had grown so much, she decided to train the people from her family's farm in Negros Occidental. And Domesticity was born.

Over the months, I have grown to love what Domesticity has to offer and here, I'll enumerate some of the reasons why.

Three Reasons to Love Domesticity

1. It is all things Filipino. I love that it's made locally and by Filipinos. It gives our fellow countrymen job opportunities and a chance for growth. Domesticity also uses materials that are indigenous to the Philippines.


2. Each product is made with love. As proof of this, all things Domesticity are painstakingly made with only the best quality in mind. A lot of their designs are unique and can easily lend an air of class and effortless style to any space.

3. Domesticity gives back. All of their workers are beneficiaries of the Gawad Kalinga Village in Negros Occidental. Domesticity products are not cheap, but when you buy a beautiful piece, part of the proceeds are actually used to help build houses for families in the community. Believe it or not, through Domesticity's partnership with Gawad Kalinga, they were able to build a clinic, a reception area, and fund several activities for the GK San Agustin Legacy Village.

Now if that's not a business with a conscience, I don't know what is.
