Anat Heifetz exhibits bamboo fashion and art in Manila E-mail

For Israeli fashion designer and artist Anat Heifetz, bamboo is not just a clump of stalks that people often see swaying in the Philippine landscape, it’s a medium through which she can best connect her two homes, Manila and Tel Aviv.

After completing her undergraduate degree at Shenkar College and her graduate studies at Tel Aviv University, Heifetz spent many years as a fashion designer for several international brands.

Soon after, she decided to branch out on her own and create her own line with her own designs. Through her travels in fashion, she grew particularly fond of Southeast Asia, and decided in 2015 to relocate to the Philippines with her family.

Two months after arriving, she started taking her fascination with bamboo a notch higher by creating art with it. “I arrived in the Philippines in December 2015 and everywhere I travelled I saw those huge stalks of bamboo. The minute I saw them, they reminded me of fabric rolls. I wanted to somehow turn those bamboo poles into fabric rolls, so I started painting and carving on them,” she told the Philippine News Agency.

From 24 July to 26 August, more than 100 of her intricately carved bamboo poles, replicating the look of textiles, were showcased at the Bamboo Road: Tel Aviv-Manila exhibition at the Ayala Museum in Makati City, Manila.
