Inabel

Handspun by artisans of the Ilocano region in the Philippines, Inabel fabrics are woven on antique wooden looms using distinctive techniques handed down through generations. What was once a flourishing art form is now threatened by modern advances.

Our Inabel collection features traditional cultural designs
re-styled for the contemporary home through uses of vibrant splashes of color and modern motifs.

 

 
 The word  Inabel  means "to be woven" in the local Ilocano dialect. This word also, more commonly, refers to the collection of products originating from that region -- blankets, covers, towels, napkins, that are hand-woven using antique wooden looms and a weaving technique that is handed down through generations. This technique is learned purely through oral tradition, as it cannot be learned formally in schools. It it passed down from grandmother, to mother, to daughter.
