Textiles of the Philippines, is a one-of-a-kind coloring book featuring the richly diverse textile-making traditions of the Ifugao, Bagobo, Yakan, and Tausug peoples.
The book is a unique artist collaboration between PJ Gubatina Policarpio and Ida Noelle Calumpang that brings together accessible information with original hand-painted illustrations that honors the exquisite handiwork of expert weavers and textile-makers across the archipelago.
"The textiles in these pages bear witness to fundamental rituals, ceremonies, and milestones as well as the daily life of their people. For the Ifugao in the mountains of the Cordilleras, the Bagobo on the gulf of Davao, the Yakan in Basilan Island, and the Tausug of the Sulu archipelago, these textiles chart a woven constellation of the past, present, and future."
This project was originally produced in conjunction with the exhibition
