Hi there! Thank you for visiting my page. I am Tin, an art enthusiast who works as a Marketing Head, Junior Graphic Artist, and a writer at present; a wanderlust and a traveler by nature who has a passion for music and arts.
I started Tindaraga as a side business when I began selling my doodles and stickers at local fairs and bazaars. I eventually ventured into developing the family craft of crocheting into an art form and business. Today, through my platform Tindaraga Arts & Crafts, I also hold art workshops to teach others not only about crocheting and its various applications, but also other forms of art that I am passionate about . Tindaraga is an amalgam of my creativity and imagination where she was able to come up with its meaning:
• Tin (noun)- the crafter’s nickname
• tinda (verb)- from the brand name itself, coined a Filipino root word which means:
1. to showcase;
2. to sell
• Daraga (noun)
1. The name of the hometown where the crafter was born and raised
2. The name of the diety or goddess of Mt. Mayon
I identify practicality and the sentimentality of wearing or using something personalized and hand-made. This advocacy grew because people saw the value of giving something they made themselves. I wanted to wear or use my own art. Not only that it is cost-efficient, but also, it has become a natural way to further my creative expression and another way to bring art, beauty, and passion to people’s lives through my handmade crafts.
