Sinimulan na siya ng tatay ko 35 years ago. Dami namin dito pinag daanan kasi nauso yung rattan na synthetic na may metal. Sobrang pasalamat namin nauso ulit itong rattan kasi hindi na kami nag hirap. Ngayon naman tinutulungan namin mga crafters na kahit galing manila kinukuha namin. Kahit wala kaming orders nagpapagawa kami para maibenta kasi ayaw namin mag ayaw sa tao. Ngayon lahat sila nandito at marami kami nagiging customers na kahit sa ibang bansa nag iinquire pa.
