We can't even begin to imagine how much love, care, and meticulous attention to detail our local Philippine weavers pour out into every length of fabric they create, so whenever a person of notable influence wears a handmade piece, it's a fashion moment to be celebrated. May our local weaves rise and thrive! It's what they deserve. On that note, check out Heart Evangelista looking chic in a T'nalak jacket by young Davao-based designer Steffy de Mylo.
In case you didn't already know, T'nalak refers to a weaving tradition of South Cotabato's T'boli indigenous people group. The cloth is woven from abacá fibers, and—even cooler!—the craftswomen are often called "dream weavers," because the patterns you see are inspired by their dreams. Fascinating, don't you think?
