From scrapping floating lilies in Agusan River to creating stylish and affordable footwear composed the journey of a social enterprise group composed of artisan mothers in Butuan City. “Bahandi slippers are made from the water lilies that are found along the Agusan River. The water lilies that usually clog the waterways are collected, dried, dyed, cut up and braided in order to be made into slippers. Each pair of Bahandi slippers are carefully handcrafted by the members. It makes the perfect “pasalubong” when coming from our city because these water lilies are abundant in the region” explains Shayla Sanchez of the Trading Post PH – where you can also order Bahandi sandals.
