Meet the weavers of the Tinalak fabric we use to make our fabulous Dani clutch....these beautiful ladies are from the T-boli tribe in Lake Zebu, Philippines. This traditional cloth is hand-woven made of Abaca fibers which traditionally has three primary colors, red, black and the original color of the Abaca leaves. The colorant of the materials are naturally dyed boiled in with bark, roots and leaves of plants. It is an heritage and believed that the intricate and creative patterns of the Tinalak was seen on their dreams and made it on to work. They can't create a design of the Tinalak if they haven't dreamed of it. They are sometimes called the "Dream Weavers".
Pure talent, tradition and culture....love it!
