MANILA, Philippines — For its 24th anniversary, Conti’s Bakeshop and Restaurant wants you to take a piece of Conti’s for keeps. 

This year, the well-loved bakeshop & restaurant in the country has partnered with Ant’s Pocket in delighting its customers with a special handmade anniversary memento.

Ant’s Pocket is a social enterprise started by Annalyn Querubin Mateo in 2006. Anne is a mother and self-proclaimed arts and craft enthusiast. What began as a hobby spurred into a full-blown business as she showcased her felt crafts in a local bazaar.

As the social enterprise grew, Anne began to hire moms in her neighborhood, who also sometimes bring their kids to help out in making felt craft products. These moms are earning additional income that they value most especially during this time where they need alternative sources.

Conti’s lovers can now bring home the iconic Mango Bravo felt pen holder. The cute and useful memento is a labor of love by the hardworking moms of Ant’s Pocket.
