This mask is made with 100% cotton ramit, handwoven by indigenous Mangyan tribes of Mindoro, Philippines. It is woven on a backstrap loom and features intricate geometric patterns. Traditionally worn as skirts or used as blankets for carrying children, it now finds other uses such as scarves, shawls, bags, and table runners. It takes one week to weave a standard 23"x108" ramit.
Your purchase of this mask supports indigenous Mangyan weavers in the Philippines. It helps fund the programs of the Mangyan Heritage Center, as well as provide school supplies and hygiene kits to Mangyan schools.
