The Samoki weavings
The Igorots, a mountain people, are mostly peasants. They cultivate rice
and can only manage one harvest per year. On rainy days, women weave.
Ancestral methods are used to create an extremely solid weaving. Still
used under its primitive forms for the people's clothing, it is now also
made into bags, wallets and other items.
Alouette helped the weavers create a label for this production, and helps
the commercialization of the products. We made some of these weavings
come in France. You can help the weavers in passing order in the secretariat
of Association Alouette.
