Maker Profile

'Kariton' is a Tagalog word which  means pushcart. Back home, a kariton is a  very useful mode of transporting goods. The common thing people put in a kariton are  those things for recycling (or junk). Their items fit perfectly well with  'junk'. Although, it is the kind of junk that's clean and usable.
