Inspired by native motifs including geometrical patterns and sun patterns.
- Size: Round, approximately 4' diameter.
- Make: Plant-dyed and natural colored woven grass. Proudly handwoven by the TWWA, which actively preserves its traditional Bukidnon-Tagolanen cultures.
- Care: Keep dry. To remove folds from the banig, gently flex it in the opposite direction of the folds, or use weights like heavy books for 1-3 days to flatten it. To clean your banig, gently shake out any dirt and dust. One may use a handheld vacuum with a brush attachment. Do not use a strong vacuum like a floor or robot vacuum since this may damage the handwoven material over time.
Each handwoven banig is individual and distinct; no two are identical. Read more about how these were woven on our Journal here.

I felt really emotional looking in the mirror wearing this because it reminded me of my mom, my lola and so many other women in my family wearing this in the Philippines.
I received my patadyong today. It is very pretty, the fabric is well woven and soft... My grandmother used patadyong’s as far as I could remember, and wearing one just reminded me of her unselfish love and care. To me it is a comfort garment. I was born in Iloilo, and am very familiar with patadyongs. Thank you for making it available to us here in the US.
