Security Bank and its long-time community partner, ArteFino, have again joined forces for the 2023 ArteFino Festival. This year’s artisanal fair promises a bigger and better experience, bringing nearly 150 brands across categories such as men and women’s fashion, home, jewelry, and accessories, to name a few. ArteFino runs from August 24–27, 2023 and returns to The Fifth at Rockwell in Power Plant Mall, Makati City.
In line with its commitment to building communities sustainably, Security Bank is also sponsoring ArteFino Maker’s Lab: Totally Upcycled Design Challenge 2023 to support the call for Filipino craftsmanship and sustainability, as embodied in this year’s theme of “Heritage meets Innovation.”
“We look forward to another partnership between ArteFino and Security Bank as we celebrate the best of Filipino culture and trade craft. Security Bank is proud to be Filipino. We are one with ArteFino’s advocacy to promote responsible retail highlighting local products crafted with purpose, impact, and intention. All this is anchored on our commitment to sustainability and our mission to enrich lives, empower businesses, and build communities sustainably,” says Tanya Deakin, FVP and Head of Corporate Communications and Brand at Security Bank.
The ArteFino denim upcycling challenge is an event that showcases Filipinos’ creativity, resourcefulness, and innovation through the upcycling of old and used materials. Entries will use 80% upcycled materials with 60% coming from denim, wood, scrap fabric, plastic, and paper and 20% coming from other materials of choice.
“As we continue to advocate and elevate local artisans, we thank all the Upcycling Design Challenge participants who heeded the call to #DesignBetter. We intend to display their entries in a special setting at the ground floor of Power Plant Mall from August 18-27, with an awarding ceremony in August as a culmination of the ArteFino Festival. We are also grateful to our longstanding collaboration with Security Bank, an ally that continues to look for new ways to deliver their mission and make a positive impact,” says Armita Rufino, one of the five founders of ArteFino.
