Sustaining the fading craft of inabel: AVA works with Tweetie de Leon

Photo-main
In Ilocos, only a handful of inabel master weavers remain. To help keep the age-old tradition awake, online retail platform AVA has collaborated with Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez in creating a handwoven inabel travel-theme collection, infused with culture, identity and history of the Filipino people, accentuating the belief that heritage should be worn on the sleeve.

AVA brings the 100% Filipino design and ingenuity to the global scene through Kicstarter. The particular anti-fast fashion is a marriage of traditional and modern aesthetic.

Weaving 101: The warp is the tightly stretched lengthwise core of a fabric while the weft is the horizontal thread woven between the warped threads to create and define an emerging pattern.https://s-media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/originals/7a/65/92/7a6592b3d9ef941b8051ee6061dd4fb8.jpgDesigner, Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez, striking a pose with her very own Inabel Weekender Bag
