- Usage & Care
The Abaca Pinangabol is a traditional weave of the Daraghuyan Bukidnon Community, one of the seven tribes of Bukindon. Traditionally used for protective clothing, the Abaca Pinangabol is woven in a vertical loom using abaca fiber that is abundant in their forest. The community uses a combination of both natural and commercial dyes to achieve a variety of vibrant colours. Pinangabol weaves carry with them generations of tradition and spirituality, as women of the Daraghuyan Tribe perform a ritual before beginning their day's work on the loom. The ikat variation of the Pinangabol features two-toned gradients achieved by applying a tie-dye technique. These are often used for clutches, pouches, and other accessories.

This blue is vivid, more so in person! I am interested to see natural dye options of the ikat patterns however. Graphic and modern nonetheless.
