Design: Kantarines (stripes) weave is best known for its striped designs of varying widths,                     colours, and combinations. They are commonly woven on pedal looms and are                         considered an everyday textile.

Material : Native to the Ilocano region of the Philippines, Inabel – also known as Abel – is a                        durable, colorful fabric made from yarns of cotton. The cotton is harvested,                                prepared into yarn and then dyed. Weaving Inabel is a labor intensive process –                          colored dyes must be arranged in a handloom to create various designs.                                                                                                                                      -Woven Wonder
