Inabel Handtowels (Set of 10)
“Inabel” or “Abel Iloko” is fabric from the Ilocos region in Northern Luzon. Handwoven on large antique wooden looms and considered as fine as French lace, they were historically traded as precious luxury items as far back as pre-colonial Philippines. The fabric is soft, pliable and durable. Oftentimes, the designs vary depending on what each weaver decides to create giving each piece a unique quality.
The “Kundiman” is a type of plain white pattern, which means love song and this is why it is traditionally gifted to couples or family households. The woven threads symbolize the ties that bind a couple and eventually the home they will build together. This particular Kundiman pattern is called "rus rus" - a repeating V pattern that makes the fabric soft and more absorbent.
Adorn your home with this or gift it to those starting out on their own.
Each batch of hand towels are handmade by artisans and patterns may vary per batch.
