- Usage & Care
Woven in a traditional backstrap loom called harablon, the Ramit is an intricate weave pattern indigenous to the Buhid and Hanunuo Mangyans in Mindoro. The weaver feels she’s part of the ramit and the harablon when it is strapped on her back. The ramit features varied and intricate geometric patterns that express the Mangyans’ ingenuity and artistry. Ramit patterns like the "ocho ocho" or "sinukap" reminiscent of number eight and this "singko" reminsicent of number five are modern names pertaining to the geometric embroidered-like patterns on the weave. Most weavers weave for themselves to use the Ramit as tapis or wrap skirts to pair up with their traditional Lambong blouses. Minatahan is symbolic of the bird's eye or mata.
