Just like the abaca fiber which is known for its sturdiness and tensile strength, the Shelmed Cottage Treasures is one of the few successful abaca companies who have withstood the many challenges and survived the stiff competition in the local and international market.
Shelmed stands for Sheldon and Mediatrix Villanueva , the couple whose love affair with abaca production is as sturdy and stable as their own love affair and married life. Twenty eight years ago at Daraga, Albay Sheldon and Med who were both in their early twenties and newly married started their business of producing quality abaca products with an initial capital of only three thousand pesos.
From a company of 5 people, Shelmed has come a long way , now numbering to 81 full time employees, 120 artisans and a support base of 2,500 families. It has now distributed its products to 27 countries in the world and works with various communities in the area.
