Hablon | @thenegrosmuseum

Hablon is Hiligaynon for “something woven,” from the root word habol which means “to weave.” It refers to the hand-woven textiles by Kiniray-a and Hiligaynon weavers.

The hablon is usually a plain weave and has plaid and striped designs. It is traditionally made of locally-made fibers such as piña, abaca, and cotton, usually used for the patadyong, the Visayan wraparound skirt, and panuelo.
