Tangkulo | @balikbatik


The Tangkulo is the traditional headdress worn by Ata Manobo | Bagobo-Tagabawa chieftain.

The pieces are first woven on a loom by hand, then tied and hand-dyed, then beaded and adorned with hand-made pom-poms. Due to the precious artisan nature of the tangkulo, each one is unique and one-of-a-kind, and are limited in supply.
