About Maricris Floirendo Brias : Maricris is a designer who works closely with ethnic tribes in the Philippines and helps preserve their native artistry and ways of life. Since everything she uses is natural and produced using traditional methods, all her products are environmentally friendly. She founded TADECO Home as a livelihood project of TADECO Inc., a banana producer in Mindanao, with the intention to support the wives and dependents of the plantation workers. She draws her inspiration for her designs from nature thus creating organic shapes and patterns in her products.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I believe, the past and the present can co-exist in harmony. I see art in the traditional skills of the ethnic tribes. For these tribes, weaving is a very spiritual art, designs of which are taken from their dreams. This process of weaving is in itself art in its purest form. By creating contemporary products using traditional art, I believe I am creating a bridge between past and present.
