"A DOLL IN EVERY FILIPINO'S HOME"
When former San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez assumed as chairperson of BSK, she had a dream for every Filipino home to have a Filipino doll in their collection.
“In our own little way, we hope we can contribute to a deep appreciation of our very own”, Gomez would always say.
Creating a Maria Clara doll usually takes a day or two, depending on the design of the overall costume, particularly the cloth for the dress and accessories ranging from necklaces, earrings, payoneta (hair comb) and abaniko (fan).
Aside from getting their costume fabrics from Divisoria, the group also gets abaca and other fine Filipino fabrics from local designer Patis Tesoro. They also have a group that crafts doll accessories.
The dolls that carry a distinct Filipiniana accent soon found its way to stores and homes of avid collectors, and 10 doll museums nation-wide. In the cities of Las Piñas, Caloocan, Marikina, Angeles, Valenzuela, the Museo ng Katipunan in San Juan; in Zambales, Bulacan and Bataan provinces and the Rizal Foundation in Japan.
