SALE: Hablon from Iloilo—hand-woven colorful textile

Hand-woven textiles have increased significantly in the past few years. In this case, Miag-ao, Iloilo, where hablon originated from in the 18th century, has become the spotlight in the international fashion arena.

The municipalities of Miagao and Oton in the province of Iloilo still remain to be the largest hablon/weaving communities that manufacture and sell export-quality products made from this colorful hand-woven textile.
