panay bukidnon t-shirt dress - bakunawa
We worked with the panubok artisans of the Panay Bukidnon to bring you 7 unique pieces embroidered with characters from their myths and legends.
On this T-shirt dress is embroidered the "bakunawa." We are told that the eater of moons is a figure important to farming for the Panay Bukidnon, as the people believe that lunar cycles affect plant growth. They look to the position of the bakunawa and the moon to determine if it is the right time for planting.
This is a one-of-a-kind garment. We will not be making this again.
The Panay Bukidnon is an indigenous community residing in the Visayas. Panubok is their traditional embroidery, coming from the ancient word "tubok," which means to embroider.
This a loose T-shirt dress made from linen.
