PhotoHunt: PATCH

Original designs and intricate patterns mark the handiwork of the T'boli tribe in the southern part of the Philippines. Their culture, slowly being eased out by the influences of the 21st century, are carefully being cradled at the Museo De Oro inside Xavier University - Ateneo De Cagayan. These ceremonial attires can arguably be more precious than gold, considering the time, effort, passion, and heritage embedded in each square inch of material. Truly irreplaceable.

  1. Lots of interesting patches there. Great shot for this week's theme.

  2. Cool! I didn't know there are tribes in the Philippines. My Filipino friends didn't tell me this.

  3. I would love to learn more about them.
