It is actually the combination of the first syllables of five names – Patsy, Peggy, Meldy, Robert, and Tina. They are the children of Benny and Corit Alejandro, who started the papemelroti business. Papemelroti is a specialty shop which carries a wide variety of gifts and decorative accessories. Papemelroti’s history began in November, 1968, when Benny and Corit opened a small the first papemelrotigift shop along Tomas Morato Ave. (Manila, Philippines). Korben Gifts, as it was called, started out as a hobby, with Corit making stuffed toys and doll’s dresses and Benny supervising the furniture making.
