Add Filipino Flair to Your Wardrobe With These Chic Handwoven Items

With the theme “The Highlights of Our HABI Journey,” the 2019 trade fair features a HABI Craft Corner that lets visitors learn the basics of weaving using different local fibers and create their own woven products. A total of 52 merchants from all over the Philippines will also showcase traditional textiles like the habol negrense from Negros Occidental, yakan from Basilan, and abel from Ilocos—all to be marketed as raw material or as finished products like handwoven bags from Coco and Tres and shoes from Lakat Sustainables.
