Designated a "Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO, the patterns woven into our fabrics carry an equally colorful history.
The art of Ifugao weaving is born from the lulls of the rice farming cycle. While waiting for rice to grow, the farmers needed to make their time productive. While wove household furniture and farming tools from rattan barks, others started to weave fabrics for personal wear, annual rituals, and wedding feasts. The beautiful patterns they've woven are the predecessors of what we see in Kandama's collection.
The pattern on this footwear is woven by an association of women in the remote village of Julongan in Kiangan, Ifugao.
