Contemporary Pinagpagan in Ikat
The pinagpagan or dilli is traditionally woven using the pinilli (supplementary warp) and balud (supplementary weft) techniques.
The blanket is worn by the highest of Ifugao nobilities and mumbaki ritualists. As a funerary blanket, it is exclusive to the upper classes.
Our contemporary version of this noble blanket is woven in binobodan or ikat, detaching it from its cultural context as a ceremonial garment, funerary or otherwise.
This rendition in ikat exemplifies the skill and artistry of our binobodan masters who continue to challenge themselves beyond the traditional in the hope of inspiring young Ifugaos to take on the ancient craft.Contemporary Pinagpagan in ikat:
