Frequently Asked Questions
What is banig and where is it made?
Banig weaving is a centuries-old tradition in the Philippines. The town of Basey, in particular, is famous for its vibrant mats made with a combination of tikog grass and buri leaves. Tikog is one of the softest and smoothest materials for banig, and is known to keep cool even in warm weather. This makes it great for naps and picnics. Colorful strips of buri are embroidered onto the mat to create intricate patterns inspired by nature and culture.
Where do you manufacture your products?
All banig mats and products are made in Basey, Samar, while the Yakan fabric are woven in Basilan. We are currently expanding our reach to other crafts communities including Banaue, Benguet, Kalinga, and Marawi. Our leather products are sourced from Marikina City.
