MAKULAY creates joyful and colorful local Filipino souvenirs with a modern twist. Two Dutch ladies, Mirjam and Renske, are the creative force behind this small business popular with the expats in the Philippines.
One of their bestsellers is the Happy Families card game, based on the Dutch "kwartet" game and similar to Go Fish. Our kids love this game and will play it over and over. The small size makes it easy to bring along on trips and it's good for all ages.
What makes it unique is that you can fully personalise the cards, to make it a true family game! Look at this one from an expat family which includes the names of their staff, and the different nooks in their house. Nice to know that their kids will always remember their time in the Philippines.
There are also special sets available for kids attending the International Schools.
We would love to have a set that includes pictures of the kids' best friends, their grandparents or our favorite food! How would your set look like?
Makulay also designs and sells greeting cards and posters with a modern Filipino twist. Posters can be personalised as well and this makes a good gift for a new born, a birthday or farewell for both children and adults.

Their latest product is a personalised canvas in any color and with any text that is important to you (also known as busblinds or tram scrolls). Just be creative and you can create your own personalised artwork for the kids room, or for you!
The owner of the picture below wanted a canvas with all the addresses of the countries they lived in.
They also sell their regular posters like these below. We love their colorful and modern design and all the options to make it truly your own unique artwork.
