About the book:
The book is a catalog of every single design known to the T’boli weavers of Lake Sebu. Each t’nalak (piece of cloth) is an artist’s interpretation of something woven by an earlier generation of weavers. The method for gathering the information in the book and cataloging each known pattern was devised by the weavers themselves.
