Loren Legarda’s Hibla and BaybayinOctober 29, 2013
Thanks to Sen. Loren Legarda, the public will be able to appreciate watching dazzling ethnic costumes and textiles, which women from indigenous communities weave for hours on end and wear with flair. These are on display at the Hibla ng Lahing Filipino: The Artistry of Philippine Textiles, the country’s first permanent textile gallery housed at the Museum of the Filipino People at the old Finance building in Rizal Park. It’s where you should bring yourself and your tourist friends for a rewarding pleasurable afternoon of admiring ethnic weaves and fabrics superbly mounted by museum exhibit specialists.
