Yuchengco Museum's Habiness! marketplace & Binakul exhibit
Jan '14
With the advent of New Year, the Makati City’s Yuchengco Museum is gearing up to host a special marketplace, featuring an array of Filipino fabrics, fashion and home décor accessories.
Dubbed as Habiness!, the textile fair, which will aim to serve as a medium to explore modern Filipino fashions and designs, is slated to be held from January 15 to 18, 2014. 
With a unique display of locally handmade products from nearly six Philippines-based manufacturers, the event will also create opportunities for the visitors to meet and interact with weavers, artisans and textile enthusiasts.
The four-day-long fair will put up items like Palawan-made tepiña shawls and blouses, inabel blankets and fabrics from Ilocos, as well as clothing from various local textiles for sale.
To complement the marketplace, the museum is also hosting an exhibit highlighting the dwindling state of abel textile made Binakul industry of Ilocos region, located in northern Philippines.
Slated to run through January 25, 2014, the ongoing event is highlighting several antique and modern uses of the hand-woven indigenous Filipino cotton fabric, known for its uniform, interlocked grid-like patterns, mimicking the contemporary psychedelic optical illusionary arts.
The ‘Art of the Loom: Weaving the Story That Is the Binakul’ exhibit features traditional Binakul patterns of whirlwinds, stars, fans, cat’s pawprints and capiz windows, alongside the modern day variations like Violeta de Borja-designed boleros and fashion accessories from designer Jojie Lloren.
