Calligraphy, Brush Pens, Nibs etc. Supplies Directory for Manila, Philippines

This is a migrated post from our old website. We realize it might not be updated anymore but nonetheless we’re posting it here so it might reach and help more people. 🙂

Hello! Welcome to part two of our handlettering series. If you haven’t seen part one, you can do so here. Don’t you hate it when you want to start a new hobby and don’t know where to get or find the supplies you want, especially here in Manila, Philippines? I know I do, that’s why I created this directory to help you find all the calligraphy supplies you want! This list will be updated so be sure to bookmark it for future reference.


*Prices not included since they’re subject to change without prior notice I separated this by material, and at the bottom there’s a list with links for your convenience. Enjoy!
