Created by JL Umipig, a multi-disciplinary artist and cultural/knowledge bearer centered on intergenerational liberation and decolonization work. The Kapwa Tarot is an integrated artistic creation that is the result of the artist's identity as a Pilipinx in a process of connecting to the Divine. It transforms the origins of Tarot to serve as a teaching tool around belief and to understand the lessons that the Tarot means to offer, through the lens of decolonization, re-indigenization and the remembering of Kapwa (the shared self).
A message from JL:
Thank you for your support and your connection to this sacred work that was laid down now 6 years ago. It means so much to have had your support in this process through your investment in bringing a deck to your home or community.
Kapwa Tarot is not just a deck of Cards- Kapwa Tarot is:
- Cultivated Knowledge sourced through JL, honoring her teachers lessons- deepening, expanding and complicating their knowing with the intentions for others to do the same.
- Honoring of Sacred Symbology. Rooting back to ancient knowledge taught to us all through a union, conversation and intertwining of the divine. In all the elements and the relation of their ecology we find lessons.
- An Invitation for Exchange... Communion... Relation... for the purpose of Re-membering Self in Other.
I am also so excited to announce that Narra Studio will be Kapwa Tarot’s official online distributor. After 6 years of handling all the exchanges for Kapwa Tarot independently, I am so excited to be in equitable partnership with Katte and her sacred work! We have rooted in our trusted relationship with each other to take this step with each other!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! words cannot express how proud I am of my heritage, and this malong shows it to the world in every woven thread. the gold color is sharp and looks beautiful! It came fast and well protected and I know there will be countless events I'll be wearing it! store owner was polite and kind and was able to answer questions regarding wanting to learn more about the patterns. thank you!! Maraming Salamat po!
I felt really emotional looking in the mirror wearing this because it reminded me of my mom, my lola and so many other women in my family wearing this in the Philippines.
I received my patadyong today. It is very pretty, the fabric is well woven and soft... My grandmother used patadyong’s as far as I could remember, and wearing one just reminded me of her unselfish love and care. To me it is a comfort garment. I was born in Iloilo, and am very familiar with patadyongs. Thank you for making it available to us here in the US.
Narra’s curated studio celebrates a legacy of the richness in the Filipino culture. Their gorgeous product highlights beauty and craftsmanship that only true artisans embody. I Love This Store.
I write to thank you for the scarf I recently purchased and that I received today. I am so delighted to have received a Filipino product of exceptional quality and artistry that really shows off our excellence. I look forward to making further purchases in the future to support our artists and to promote our gifts and talents where I am. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat.
