MANILA, Philippines - Providing quality Philippine handicrafts since 1945 and hailed as the authentic brand for the best in native products, Tesoro’s ushered in 2015 with the celebration of the birth centenary of its late co-founder, the much-admired Salud Tesoro, last Feb. 6.

Her birth centennial kicks off a year-long program that will culminate with the celebration of Tesoro’s 70th year in business in October. The activities highlight how Tesoro’s continues to reflect the timeless virtues of Salud Tesoro – industry with passion, honesty with integrity, leadership with innovation – capped off by exemplary service that has earned her the sobriquet, “The Mother of Philippine Handicrafts”.

“Tesoro’s ceaselessly develops new designs and concepts while maintaining our core collection of heritage crafts, giving us an identity distinct from typical handicraft stores,” says Maria Isabel ‘Beng’ Tesoro, youngest daughter of the prolific founder and group CEO of Tesoro’s.

“We remain connected with our loyal customers while we reach out to new ones. We support hundreds of employees and thousands of key suppliers so we can provide world-class Filipino products along with our attentive staff for a pleasurable shopping experience,” added Beng who, together with eldest sister Alice Tesoro-Guerrero, chairman of Tesoro’s, and their nine surviving siblings, have steadfastly nurtured the business founded by their parents.

Tesoro's is a strong enterprise because it blends the best qualities of a professionally-run corporation with the patience and long-term view of a family business.

Tesoro’s already offers online shopping through its website for customers both here and abroad. Aside from its accessible locations in Manila and Makati, its airport stores provide last-minute shopping convenience for travelers.
