Palawan’s basket and mat weavers to show techniques Aug. 1-2 at National Museum | SENATOR Loren Legarda is inviting the public to view and observe Palawan’s basket and mat weavers on August 1 and 2 at the National Museum of Anthropology. “I invite everyone to witness this weaving demonstration to know more about Filipino weaving culture and to interact with local weavers. This is also a way of supporting their livelihood,” said Legarda. The weaving demonstrations will be held from 11 a.m. to 12nn, and 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Reception Room, 4th floor, National Museum of Anthropology (formerly Museum of the Filipino People), Old Finance Building, Rizal Park Manila. The National Museum of the Philippines, in partnership with Sen. Legarda, organized the events. In the past weeks, mat and basket weavers from Marinduque, Oriental Mindoro and Romblon showcased their weaving techniques. Museum visitors are also encouraged to explore its Hibla ng Lahing Filipino textile gallery; Baybayin gallery; and the Rice, Biodiversity and Climate Change exhibit—all of which were joint projects of Legarda and the National Museum. In 2014, textile weavers from the Cordillera Region, Panay Island and Mindanao showcased their weaving traditions at the National Museum as part of the Sen. Loren Legarda Lecture Series on Philippine Traditional Textiles and Indigenous Knowledge—a project of the senator and the National Museum since 2012.
