Filipino craftsmanship feat. in Textile Fair

While out and about, I happily chanced upon this exhibit being done in Glorietta, Makati City.

The exhibit is called Likhang Habi, Textile Fair. It was held from October 25 – 27 2013.

I have always loved pretty things and I can’t help but marvel at not only the beauty these artists have created but that they are all Filipino made. My countrymen are indeed a very talented bunch.

Personally, the more that I am exposed to other nationalities and cultures, the more that I fall in love with my Filipino heritage. With my camera in hand, I snapped away, drinking the beauty and pleasure of seeing these items worthy of international recognition. I just love being Filipino!

Surround yourself with beauty, create beauty and what country to better showcase this than the Philippines?

Enough of me, I’ll let the pictures do all the talking 😉

Mabuhay ang gawang Pilipino!

Given the right occasion, I  will definitely wear a Filipiniana.  The design of this piece is a understated but love it nonetheless.

The first time I saw this, I pictured myself in the Ambassador's ball with this as my shrug. The fabric is just divine!
