Ditta Sandico


“Fashion is always evolving, changing, moving forward… reinventing back to our roots.”

Known as the “Wrap Artiste” of the Philippines, Ditta Sandico is a visionary fashion designer that embraces an ecologically-friendly design and production process, creatively transforming indigenous fibers, such as banana, pineapple and abacca into a fashion art form, designing wraps that follow the movements of the body, and recycling the remainders into beautiful accessories. Ditta continues to carry the Filipino identity through her collection, revolutionizing the Philippine natural fiber industry by working with a cooperative in Baras, Catanduanes, training them in natural dye extraction and advanced weaving techniques, providing a sustainable income and giving life to a struggling cultural heritage. An ethical fashion designer, Ditta has been recognized by several organizations for her achievements in women leadership and entrepreneurship.
