We hope our keepsakes evoke nostalgia and remind you of your rich and beautiful heritage.
The name Adeling is based on the Filipino naming custom of combining names to create a new name.
The namesakes of Adeling are Mel's grandparents, Adelaida and Ding (although she prefers to lovingly call them 'grama' and 'grampa').
She took both their names to create the name Adeling, pronounced ad - eh - LING.
Fun fact: Adeling's logo was actually created by Grama Adelaida, who wrote it by hand.
