How is your learning experience going so far? I know you are all good and coping. You will surely learn more about the beauty and uniqueness of the different forms of arts in MIMAROPA and Visayas through these new sets of learning experiences that we are about to unfold.
As Filipinos are naturally artistic, each of the Philippines’ regions has made trademarks in its art forms making one unique among the others. This is something we could be proud of. In fact, our artistry is also reflected on our choice of fabrics in weaving, manner of dressing and even in the production of our tapestries. Seeing different types of fabrics at a time, we can easily identify which distinctive characteristic in the fabric belongs to one locality or another. For instance, the Ilocanos of Northwestern Philippines are well-known for their pinilian while the Bontoc people of the Mountain Province are known for the Bontoc textile. Another example is the fabric local to Kalinga that exhibits motifs in distinct dialogue between red and blue bands of plain or twill weave, creating densely- composed groups of tight strips These locallyproduced fabrics have characteristics that in one way symbolize a part of the culture it represents.
How about you? Can you name some fabric or textile types that are prominent to a specific locality or region? Do you easily recognize fabric patterns upon seeing them displayed in stores, used as decorations in celebrations or when worn by a person you just randomly saw? As a young Filipino, you must try to be familiar with these local fabrics, textiles and tapestries as they are very vital components of the culture we are to embrace
