Founded in July 2017 the Kali collection is a celebration of Indigenous culture and the promotion of the Filipino martial arts as part of their cultural heritage.
The pyrography designs reimagine traditional symbolism from across the archipelago into contemporary 21st century motifs. The entire weaponry collection including Kali sticks, long staff, palm sticks, swords, and knives are individually handcrafted each with a unique story.
