Each is one of a kind
Beautiful handmade tingkop from Palawan, Philippines. Made by basketmakers that carry the breadth of their history and cosmology - all held together by the handwoven strips of a basket known as tingkop.
The tingkop also wields a significant role in ritual use. Small tingkops carrying amulets are worn by Pala’wan hunters around their neck to attract success in their hunts. It is also used in rituals to call upon spirits, for the Pala’wan believe that only smaller tingkop can contain the spirits’ strength.

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.
