Organised by HABI,The Philippine Textile Council–a nonprofit organization–the fair is designed to showcase the artistry of the country’s indigenous weavers. HABI co-founder Maribel Ongpin revealed that more than 80 exhibitors will take part in the event, making it HABI’s biggest trade fair to date. And for the first time, the show will include textile exhibitors from the ASEAN region, namely, the weaving communities of Brunei, Indonesia, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
