Wagas Crafts was formally organized in the Philippines last 1998 as Sole Proprietorship to engage in the business of manufacturing, retailing and wholesaling of wooden handicrafts. At first, the company exclusively developed the WOODEN COLLAPSIBLE BASKETS, and later popularly known as "Magic Baskets" all over the world. Then, another product line was developed and described as the WOODEN FLYING MOBILES, and commonly known as "Magic Mobiles".
Basically, its strategy was to capture the domestic market by joining crafts fairs and bazaars, and consequently, establish and operate outlets in strategic areas like big malls all over the Philippines. Its guiding philosophy was to "consume first its own production, and the rest to the export market".
Currently, the company is maintaining nine (9) retail outlets all over country. The basic identity of its products is principally handcrafted and hand painted. Even with the advent of the modern technology, it has maintained the distinct touch derivative from the expressions of handmade products.
The company is operating a factory manned by gifted-skilled workers capable of producing a container load of its products every month. It is catering export orders to the United States of America, Asia, Canada, France, and other parts of the globe.
In the year 2003, the company has introduced a new concept of Collapsible Baskets described as "HANDY BASKETS ". It has introduced an "anti-tilt locking system" and "huge basket capacity" with uniform size of 18mm X 400mm X 400mm for all its selected designs. The main purpose of its new concept is to create a perfect functional decor. For simplicity and convenience, it has adopted a "one size, one price" policy.
