- Usage & Care
Coming from the Maguindanaoan word that means "woven", the Inaul is a traditional woven cloth commonly used in malongs. Traditionally woven using the back looms, the inaul is an an object of “bara-bangsa” which means dignity and often used by royalty. The weavers of the inaul show their ingenuity as each patterns are not copied from anywhere but rather the identity of the different tribes in Mindanao. Taught by their ancestors and elders of the tribe, each patterns were given an update and made modern but still staying true to their roots. Inspired by their stories and the things around them, each pattern is a representation of their culture from pinatindeg a kayo (pine tree), mutya aramen (princess), ukir a diamon (diamond), binaludto (rainbow), and panigabi (taro).
