Textiles are a vital element in the development of a culture, which grows out of a need for perfection and the enrichment of life. The spirits of those who imparted their talents through the years can be sensed in the handcrafted works they have left behind, rich with the beauty that transcends time.

An ancient Oriental proverb teaches us to “explore the old, realize the new.” This is the fiber of innovation that weaves new traditions.

Pinoy Dressing is an attempt to continue and integrate weaving culture into contemporary design ideas, in the hope of preserving past values and enriching them with new ideas for contemporary applications. To build upon traditional artistic attitudes and sensibilities, rather than deserting them, is quite unavoidable in the endless process of creation.

It is this hidden, aesthetic wealth of the Pinoys who came before us, that has given us the heritage from which we now draw on for fresh ideas. It is the time of the global village in fashion. In exploring the old and realizing the new, we rethread the very fabric of our lives.
