Philippines fashion fair focuses on indigenous materials
Domestic fashion brands, handcrafted items and use of indigenous stuff like T'nalak—a cloth made by the Tboli people of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato—and Maguindanao's woven cloth Inaul were showcased at a fashion fair called 'Unstitch' held recently at the Philippine Women's College in Davao. A movement, 'Fashion Revolution', was also launched.

The movement equally focused on people’s values, the planet, creativity and profit, according to a news agency report.

Unstitch is a global event that seeks to scale efforts on sustainable fashion, which hinges on environmental and sustainability campaign that started in 2013 in the United States.

A group brought home-grown fashion brands that utilise indigenous materials from Mindanao in the  sustainable fashion fair dubbed “Unstitch”.

Storytelling sessions were also held, highlighting Mindanao fashion makers such as Sesotinawa, a community of artisans and cultural workers.

The activities raised public awareness on issues that make up the relationship of fashion and sustainability—climate change, water stress, pollution, biodiversity, natural resources and slavery. (DS)
