The town of Liliw in Laguna is known for their quality handwoven footwear. Thus, Tsinelas Festival or Slipper Festival celebrated every first week of May. The streets of Liliw are filled with establishments selling all kinds of footwear; from simple slippers to the most detailed ladies' high heeled shoes.
Some tourists come to Liliw to buy bulk orders (Liliw is known for cheaper prices, yet quality footwear) but most come to have picture taken with their Giant Tsinelas.
The festival aims to make the town of Liliw known to the world as the great makers of footwear in the Philippines.
