Crafting Futures: Sustaining handloom weaving in the Philippines
Handloom weaving in the Philippines is going through a pivotal phase. While there have been research projects conducted on the craft industry of the Philippines, these have not focused on the local handloom weaving industry and how it is connected to or being affected by movements happening in the rest of the world. In this context, the British Council commissioned MUNI to conduct a study to help build the programme concept for Crafting Futures in the Philippines, focused on the handloom weaving industry within the context of the wider craft sector in the country and globally.
