Why You Should Not Miss HABI Market Fair 2017
There’s something about traditional woven products, I would hoard every time I visit Ifugao, Bicol and the Mindanao region. I was only 19 years old when I bought an Ifugai woven wall decor instead of other pasalubong items.
Then I learned about crocheting and wanting to use pure cotton in making throw pillow cases and purses. Are you also interested in weaving? Discover weaves from different parts of the country at the happening this weekend, October 20-22 at the Glorietta Activity Center.
