Each piece for Fil-Am Heritage Month covers a piece of history within a city in America. We understand that the chosen histories do not cover everything that our people have done in this country, however it goes over major aspects of the progress of Filipinos throughout American history.
Each pair of earrings will tell a specific story and will come with a micro story book that will tell the history of the piece and why that moment was monumental for our people.
This line was a collaboration between BRWNGRLZ, Anne Fard of @shakerszstories (Toronto CA) and Tayler Pineda of @byttpj (London UK)
This collaboration was set with the intention to connect Global Pinays to share history and further connect our stories as Fil-Ams with the rest of the world.
Our collection covers 4 major cities:
Chicago IL and the nursing migration
Delano CA and the United Farm Workers Movement
San Francisco CA and the Manongs of the I-Hotel
Stockton CA's Little Manila
Each piece dedicated to these cities will be shipped with a complimentary story book that will explain the moment in history that the earring is designed from. Each piece was designed in collaboration with Tayler Pineda of byTPPJ and each story book was crafted by Anne Fard of Shakerszstories
Each piece will have designated organizations that we will be donating proceeds towards. The organizations are also based in the cities that the earrings are centered.
