- Usage & Care
The art of weaving is woven into the soul of the municipality, with Spanish missionaries noting that the industry predates their occupation. From the Bisaya derivative habol (blanket), Hablon means to completely cover something with a piece of cloth. But the Hablon has proven to suit more than just blankets, with many of our apparel items incorporating the weave. Not to be confused with the Hablon of Iloilo, the people of Argao in Cebu province also have their own version of the weaves. Building on centuries of tradition, the weavers of Argao have mastered the stripe - developing several striped designs that prove that simple is beautiful. The women of Argao also historically use these stripe hablon as skirts and blouses.

I got a meter of this weave since the pattern is from my pamily's region. The color and pattern bring me so much joy when I look at it on display. I feel closer to home even though I have 1000s of kilometers from home. The only thing I would like to see different is to somehow keep the sides from fraying. Some of the string have come off the side and I am trying to fix that with fabric glue. Hopefully it will hold.
