|I bought this fabric from Silahis in Old Manila. They carry thousands
of Philippine handicraft products, some new and some old. None of them
are dated. It crossed my mind, as I was cutting the fabric, that it
might be vintage!|
Gilet made with Balud handwoven textile and neon lime thread. Balud refers to handwoven loom patterned with bands of tiny ikat weft motifs arranged between multi-colored warp stripes, made by the Maranao People from Lanao del Sur, Mindanao, Philippines.
|My cousin Alessa gave me leather and this hand-woven fabric from Anthill. On a whim I decided to use them for these slip-on shoes. I think the neon thread is unexpected and interesting. The textile was turned sideways to make the triangle tribal pattern look like a whimsical row of bows down the front of the shoes. It was really hard to sew leather with just a needle!|
