The Story Behind The DIYOSA Collection:
Diyosa is the Tagalog word for goddess. The ancient gods and goddesses of Greek and Roman Mythology have been widely celebrated and honored by people around the world. Philippine Mythology is also overflowing with ancient deities - representing everything from nature, to love, strength, beauty and wisdom. Why not celebrate them too? Honouring my Filipino heritage has always been important to me, especially through my work. The rich history of gods and goddesses of the Philippines date back to pre-colonial times, yet much of this history is slowly being erased. My wish for this collection is to pay homage to my cultural roots and share the magic of the gods and goddesses of my ancestors. With every shop update I will add new pieces that celebrate different Philippine gods and goddesses.
