Eloisa Hizon Gomez Abaca Weaving Competition

Eloisa Hizon Gomez Abaca Weaving Competition

In keeping with its principal mandate to promote hand-weaving and invariably products resulting from such endeavors as well as uplift the livelihoods of the country’s traditional weavers, the council is also holding several events during the three-day fair, chief among them two competitions: the 6th annual Lourdes Montinola Piña Weaving Competition and the 2nd Eloisa Hizon Gomez Abaca Weaving Competition.

Apart from recognizing the best works produced by some of the country’s weavers, both competitions aim to promote and bolster the art of hand-weaving, which, based on HABI’s previous experiences, especially with piña, has resulted not only in innovation, but also in the reemergence of what was previously thought as lost styles and weaving techniques.



Here are the winners of the 2nd Eloisa Hizon Gomez Abaca Weaving Competition! Congratulations! 🏆🌿
