Filipino biscuit brand Rebisco’s designer tin can art is returning in time for the Christmas gift-giving season while supporting young artists in school.
This Christmas, if you’re looking for a gift that’s beautiful, meaningful, filled with goodies to the brim and literally a work of art, Rebisco’s Special Edition Designer Cans would make perfect presents.
The Special Edition Designer Cans first introduced in 2018 and continued in 2019 with the works of Angono artists features a mini version of the big, iconic Rebisco tin cans that have been favorite Pinoy pasalubongs for generations.
Did you know that the practice of packaging biscuits and cookies in tin cans has been around since the 16th century?
European voyagers packed biscuits as snacks for long trips and placed them in cans. Several hundred years later airtight cans, meant to store biscuits so they would not crumble and stay oven-fresh, were invented. Since then, tin cans have been the best containers for biscuits and cookies, evolving into pretty things that people kept, collected, and reused.
In the 2021 edition, the works of contemporary and budding talents – Dominic Rubio, Aljo Pingol, and three young artists from Regional Lead School of the Arts in Angono (RLSAA), Julia Baluyot, Dave Dauz, and Lyra Lacanaria – are immortalized on the sides of the special edition tin cans.
Familiar Filipino scenes, traditions, local heritage, and everyday life are celebrated in bold, playful, dramatic, and whimsical styles using striking, soothing, and exciting colors. The artworks are original and unique to the designer cans.
Why You Should Buy Rebisco Designer Tin Cans
These junior-sized cans are not just lovingly packed with premium Rebisco biscuits, cookies, crackers, and wafers, they are meant to be decorative pieces to be collected and displayed. They can be multifunctional containers too.
But the tin cans are not just all about aesthetic values.

Rebisco is providing the schools with art essentials, equipment, and other resources that will help young art scholars pursue their creative dreams in various art forms.
