With this exhibit, titled ABEL ILOKANA, the National Museum fetes the genius and skill of Ilocana weavers from Ilocos Sur, La Union, Ilocos Norte, and Abra.


Every weekend this March 2014, from 2 to 5 PM, the Hibla Gallery will feature lecture-demonstrations by weavers. The Museum's loom collection, usually serving as displays, will be brought to life to produce abel, the vernacular Ilocano textile.

The Hibla ng Lahing Filipino Gallery is located at the 4th Floor of the Museum of the Filipino People, Old Finance Building, Rizal Park, City of Manila. For the full schedule, please refer to the image below:
