Tote bag from Cheeky Olive

Can you hear it? The sleigh bells ringing! It may seem like Christmas is too far away to fully immerse yourself in the holiday spirit, but now is the best time to start shopping for our loved ones. We don't want to leave everything until the last minute, now do we? Well, even if you plan to, Karton got us covered.

Founded in the third quarter of 2016, Karton is an e-commerce platform that let users choose from a huge selection of handmade goods and specialty dishes – all ready to ship at a moment’s notice. The site features a diverse roster of sellers that range from long-time bazaar staples to aspiring home entrepreneurs, each one with its own distinct character and style.

As soon as I entered their store located at 315 B LRI Design Plaza Bel-Air II, 210 Nicanor Garcia Makati City, I was lured by everything I was seeing. From hand-made tote bags by Cheeky Olive, Pure Lambanog by Barik to Natural Pet Care Products by Fetch. It was a match made in heaven, indeed. Ms. Thea Serad, Karton's Marketing Associate, talked me through all I need to know about their shop that promotes artisan goods proudly owned by Filipino entrepreneurs. According to her, the idea of building an e-commerce website sparked when one of their partners asked when will their next bazaar be, now sellers will no longer have to wait - instead, they can sell their hand-made goods any time of the year and customers can reach their products online and have them delivered to their doorstep with just a few clicks.

Even if you're on a shoestring budget it doesn't mean you should settle for less, Karton's selection of Christmas Baskets filled with artisan goods will surely make your loved ones feel special this Yuletide.
