Aspin or "Asong Pinoy" (Fiipino Dog) are our native local dogs found everywhere in the Philippines. They are a great representation of the Filipino spirit of resilience, loyalty and hospitality! We hope this puppy can be a way to teach our children to respect all animals, including those you may find roaming the city streets. Adopt one now!
Each Aspin Puppy measures approximately 10 inches tall, and around 7 inches long. Do remember, that each hand knit item is unique and sizes may vary slightly.
Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
