The Best of Philippine Textiles in Likhang Habi: Market Encounter 2

The Best of Philippine Textiles
in Likhang Habi: Market Encounter 2

Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Yuchengco Museum, and Lopez Memorial Museum host local indigenous textiles bazaar on October 23 to 24

The best of homegrown textiles are up for grabs in Likhang Habi: Market Encounter 2. The two-day event is hosted by Yuchengco Museum on October 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the courtyard of RCBC Plaza (corner of Ayala and Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati).

With 30 participating vendors from across the country, Likhang Habi treats bazaar-goers to a range of exclusive finds—from traditional and contemporary textiles and indigenous handicrafts to one-of-a-kind home decor and designer fashions. Shoppers can expect to find—loom-woven cotton inabel from Northern Luzon, blends of piña silk from Palawan, yakan material from Mindanao, t'nalak with dream-inspired patterns, and banana fiber and silk items by Dita Sandico-Ong.

Aside from the two-day marketplace, special events at Likhang Habi include an exhibit on rare antique fabrics and a lecture on local weaving traditions, both at Yuchengco Museum. Leading textile scholar Dr. Norma Respicio will talk on The Philippine Textile Weaving Tradition on October 24 at 3 p.m. The lecture is sponsored by HABI, the Philippine Textile Council.

Entrance fee to the Likhang Habi bazaar is only P50, inclusive of admission to Yuchengco Museum and the Likhang Habi exhibit and lecture.

Likhang Habi: Market Encounter 2 is an undertaking of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Eugenio Lopez Foundation, and Yuchengco Museum in line with Museum Month and the International Year of Natural Fibers. It is an offshoot of Market Encounter, a textile bazaar initially launched at the 2nd ASEAN Traditional Textiles Symposium at the National Museum of the Filipino People in February 2009.

For information, call the Yuchengco Museum at 889-1234 or e-mail the Likhang Habi secretariat at
