THE MNY SPOTLIGHT
Ilocos Norte: The Site of the Hand-Loomed Habi x Mestiza Collection
Ilocos Norte is a province of the Philippines and is better known for their intricate diamond and floral designs.
We have partnered with the Habi Foundation in the Philippines to support female textile weavers. Each season, we incorporate their hand woven fabrics into our collection. Not only are the fabrics beautiful, but each piece also helps to sustain the Philippine cotton farming industry, create jobs and keep a centuries old craft alive for us to enjoy.
Our partnership allows for women to work from home and care for their house and family, while still receiving a pay check. This creates opportunities for women to gather together and weave in the traditional manner that they were taught.
