Kalinga Multipurpose Lilaktob Belt/Scarf/Bandeau (Thin)
These are muted versions of traditional colors such as blue and red, which the artisans have adapted to demands of the market. The original blue color represented the blue backdrop of the sky. Red is sacred color related to life force. The tinatalaaw (hourglass shapes) patterns symbolize the passage of day & night with the sina-sao (crisscross) patterns commonly used in the tattoos of the region as a talisman for protection. A reminder that if we protect nature, it will nourish us.
Because the artisans create limited numbers per design and vary the design with each batch, patterns and beadwork may vary slightly from these photos.
