The embroidery culture in the Philippines was established around the turn of the century in the town of Taal and Batangas. It has been considered a refined art in society because of its detailed, well-embossed appearance. Embroidery is regarded as a very impressive Philippine art form. On top of that, it is now linked to numerous other locally produced goods that are sold to every country in the world.
The Philippines is home to many talented communities of embroiderers. For example, there are the Itneg embroiderers from Abra. The Lumban from Laguna are artists who specialize in creating the traditional barong Tagalog. In Mindanao, the Mandalas from Davao and the T’bolis from Lake Sebu. The passion of our artists and the Filipino businesses who bring to the fore the centuries-old techniques to preserve and nurture the art of needlework are as rich in materials and inspiration as the archipelago itself.
Piña and other conventional fabrics are utilized as the materials for embroidered design. The Piña embroidery is made from the most excellent mature leaves of the red Spanish species of pineapple and is a lovely, soft, flexible, off-white fabric. The most expensive material for Barong Tagalog during the Spanish era was piña, which was used for extremely rare and exceptional events. Besides clothing, the Philippines uses this art form in everything. From accessories to bags and furniture.
Inspired by Filipino Embroidery, particularly Piña and linen, we created an embroidered design. We use three colors on our carpet: white, grey, and beige. The white color for the embroidery itself. Grey and beige symbolize the cloth. The style employs geometrical and organic shapes, even emphasizing our carpet’s embroidered design. The design is perfect for personal rooms and offices.
