A business that started with just paper... "paper-mache".
Believe it or not, this successful business of Bacolod City's Jojo Vito was just started by making paper-mache masks. This eventually made him famous not only in the city but in the whole country as well, branching to the field of furniture designs and internal decorations.
Jojo is a designer with great vision and imagination, his tools for success that led him to what he has accomplished. His products are not only being sold all over the Philippines but also for export.
"It only started as a hobby" Jojo said, "but when you have what it takes and that God-given talent... you will surely be recognized."
His designs are not only beautiful but also of great quality. Jojo has designed masks for the MassKara Festival, decorative masks, and different kinds of furniture, lampshades and even key chains, necklaces ... all done with great precision.
A product of Negros that we can truly be proud of as Filipino!
Catch his artworks at the 26th Negros Trade Fair on September 28 - October 2, 2011 at Rockwell Tent, Makati City.
