Art is a part of everyday life in the Central Cordillera. Women weave in the Kalinga town of Lubuagan to earn a living for their family. Weaving is a Kalinga tradition that has been passed down through the years. At the age of ten, girls begin weaving. Men are also involved in the creation of the craft.


On woven products, many groups share similar techniques, motifs, and color schemes. Kalinga dress is distinct from other ethnic groups, particularly the women's wraparound skirts. In Tagalog, this form of wraparound skirt is called as "Tapis," while in Kalinga, it is known as "Kain."


Pilakpak, ilaglis, silugwid, and gilamat are some of the numerous design variations of the Kain. Rituals, festivals, marriages, and other special occasions are all occasions when the garments are worn


This is a rectangle cloth that has been woven on back strap body tension looms, embroidered with nature-inspired motifs, and adorned with beads and mother of pearl shells. Shells are connected in such a way that they move and reflect light. The design patterns and symbols are influenced by natural elements such as animals, mountains, and stars.


Colors and patterns have unique connotations. The color red, for example, indicates boldness, while the black-strepe prints depict Earth or the ground. Because yellow is the color of fertility and riches, it is utilized to embroider mountain motifs.


Weavers take great care not to change their designs or color choices for their woven products. It is a method for them to preserve their culture and customs while also demonstrating the uniqueness of Kalinga's woven handicrafts.
