Sachet Archives

Sachet Archives is a mini-archiving project defining Filipino ephemera to those unfamiliar with it. From the mind of queer, Visayan visual artist Ginoe, it serves as a public archive of local mementos from supermarkets and merchants across the Philippines. They are images that only existed for a short period, expected to have a limited shelf-life and popularity.

But through Sachet Archives, these designs are no longer impermanent as the virtual archive treats them as important pieces of art. Although most of these cost P10 at a sari-sari store near you, they are a slice of Filipino visual identity, from their use of primary colors to their economical design principles.
