What makes it a social enterprise?
Habi Footwear is all about responsible fashion, Pinoy pride and social involvement.
It aims to bring responsible fashion within the Philippines into the spotlight by partnering with low-income urban communities in the Philippines. Currently, Habi works with the mothers of the poor communities in Quezon City - Kawan ni Sto. Niño in Old Balara and Saint Luigi Oriones Creations in Payatas. The mothers weave the rags used to make the shoes and are paid an income at three times above the market price, and also provides additional skills-based training to the communities.
By also using recycled materials in its shoes, Habi is as good for the feet as it is for the earth.
