The Philippine weavers are the mothers and culture bearers. Weaves tell stories and are physical manifestations of the reciprocity of the Land and its People. By wearing these weaves, we support circularity, culture and sustainable living for these artisans. The Kantarines weaves are upcycled commercial polyester scraps made by weavers in Abra, Ilocos Norte. The Kantarines weaves are traditionally used as tapis or wrap around skirts by the women in Abra.)
