Upland Tingguian Lowland Iloko: Shared Convention of Tingguian and Ilokano Weaving Traditions

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Abra, a former Ilocos town, now among the provinces of the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), has a rich texture of social, political and cultural history. AbreƱos are largely Tingguians and Ilocanos.

The centuries-old impaod (backstrap) weaving and its many forms, developed through rituals and dreams, are so much a piece of history of the people (Itnegs) of the Tineg River. Pinaing is the goddess of the women weavers who were taught to weave at the age of ten.

The Tingguian colors are predominantly muted. Natural dyes such as malatayum plant (for indigo) were prominent in the designs of the olden days.

The ethnic handwoven fabric comes in the forms of traditional garments, blankets, scarves, table covers and many more.
