Our ancestors have abundantly blessed us with so many treasures when it comes to culture and artistry. They communicated to the next generations through a pre—Spanish Philippine writing system called Baybayin, a Filipino word which means “to write or spell”.
And as the era evolved, every Filipino must foster the importance and beauty of Baybayin passed down to us.
That’s why Legazy® used its voice as a platform to honor our pre-colonial writing system and to reconnect with our roots through a Filipino made Baybayin Streetwear.
HERE’S HOW LEGAZY® MATERIALIZED A FUTURE-PROOF BRAND VISION:
- THE PURPOSE: The Filipino’s DNA
To learn about your past is to remind you of your deepest identity as a Filipino. Legazy® believes that this modern street is a great avenue for us to showcase a local brand’s Baybayin Streetwear. To remind the present and future generation the importance of living what our ancestors fought for long ago.
- THE SEARCH
Our team hunted and searched first for the handpicked heroes that will help our Legazy® thread the line of products.
- THE ALLIANCE
We set forth to meet the local hands in one of the provinces known for excellent craftsmanship in producing garments in Luzon – Bulacan.
- THE LINE
