STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN
ARAW EARRINGS are designed to honor the PILIPINX diaspora, to act as a visual reminder of our shared histories. Celebrating the iconic sun emblazoned on our Philippine flag, the ARAW // SUN signifies the efforts of all who shed their blood for the country during the 1896 revolution against Spain, with its eight rays signifying the eight provinces with significant involvement in the revolution: Bataan, Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, and Pampanga. Wear these earrings with pride and tell our stories to all who listen.

Please handle earrings with care, and avoid pairing them with scarves or other clothing that the spindles can get caught on and cause breakage. Niobium ear wires can be wiped clean with a soft cloth dipped in mild soapy water. Take care to not expose the bamboo to water; the wood is finished to be water resistant but is not waterproof. Excessive moisture can warp the natural wood.
