It’s been over 100 years since a book of Philippine Mats has been put together, it is hoped that this book will make up for the long hiatus.

From the north and the south of the Philippine archipelago come mats that show aspects as well as the creative and artistic adjustments, nay imagnative adaptability that they display in how they are conceptualized and made.

The colors, the materials, the uses, the varieties in both their common or mundane level and their outstanding and accomplished heights are the subject of this book of Philippine mats by Our Collaborative author Mr. Elmer Nocheseda.
