Likhang HABI Market Fair at Glorietta: October 2016

Check out Likhang HABI Fair on October 14-16, 2016 at Glorietta Activity Center in Makati. The 6th HABI Market Fair showcasing traditional Philippine weaves will reveal the amazing development of locally-woven products.  

A pet project of HABI is to support a return to pure cotton in weaving. Philippine cotton is equivalent in quality to the best Egyptian cotton, but its cultivation and use has almost died out in the country. HABI encourages the planting of cotton, to provide weavers the material to create masterpieces in this and many other natural fibers to help bring Philippine textiles into global view.
