22 Jan Erlen Bag and Beyond BeachCrazy
The past year has been exhilarating and momentous for both my brand and my personal life. Spending time with the indigenous peoples of Palawan and witnessing first-hand their craft and lifestyle while being surrounded by some of the most breathtaking views in the world is nothing short of moving. Since then, they have been a part of my family and BeachCrazy bags was conceived in their honour.
Their essence and culture have been exquisitely hand-woven into each product as it emanates this incessant feeling of the tropical island life. The locals of the province have been heart-warming and generous that I made a significant decision to live among-st them this year while we work on our next project together.
I am also excited to help more local tribes in other places of the Philippines and share their culture about weaving and create beautiful bags for the world to see. So much work and time needed to make this vision a reality soon.

Before we unwrap a little teaser of what’s to come in my brand, let me acquaint you all with ERLEN bag from my BeachCrazy collection. This chic carry-all is quite accommodating of any season and every event you have booked in your new planner. With its classic colours and prominent shape, it is sure to turn heads of influencers and street style stars.
Flaunt it while sun-chasing your final days of the holidays or even during an interview for your next dream job. Indulging them with your knowledge and lifestyle of fair-trade labels and thoughtful consumerism just might get you the deal. As everyone thought it’s the last bag in the collection but we started to reveal Cora bag this January and will create more of what’s coming.
Beginnings can be daunting but they are the most important part of the process. For each and everyone who supported the brand and the Caritas community, I am indebtedly grateful. Now is the time to take a leap of faith and trust the magic of the years to come.
