Tinalak is a handwoven cloth made from abaca fiber. It is considered as a cultural heritage of the Tiboli tribe in Lake Sebu. The Tiboli weaving traditionally only has 3 colors—red, black and brown. These colors are rendered from natural pigments from leaves, roots and tree barks through boiling. The patterns in the cloth are believed to have been revealed to the weavers in their dreams.
The Tinalak carries a traditional and functional significance among the indigenous group. It is considered a prized possession by a Tiboli bride and uses the cloth during childbirth as it is said to ensure safe delivery. The weaving activity is also considered spiritual. Traditonally, cutting the cloth is believed to bring bad luck. When Tiboli women sell their works, they attach a brass ring to their produce to appease the spirits. Complex patterns and the abaca’s sturdy quality require skilled weaving techniques and good quality tinalak often takes months to finish.
In this year’s Moda Mindanaw, SM City Davao through the initiative of Mindanao Commission on Women and in cooperation with the Department of Tourism will showcase the Tiboli heritage in an evening of fashion on August 19, 6PM at SM Davao Cinema 3. Participating designers from different parts of the region were provided with Tinalak, which is expected to be incorporated in their entries.

Joining the Kadayawan celebration at SM City Davao is the country’s top ballet ensemble Ballet Philippines on August 10. Ballet Philippines goes Kadayawan will feature excerpts from the company’s well-loved pieces made possible with the genius of proudly Davao talents.
Moriones. Choreographed by no less than Ms Agnes Locsin, Moriones takes inspiration from the Moriones Festival of Marinduque. The material was originally put together for Ballet Philippines 2’s participation at the Recontres Festival Du Danse in La Baule, France. It also became a study for movement for the Guardias Civil dance for Locsin’s coming Encantada. Full performance was first seen in July 1991, Manila, Philippines.
Pusong Wagas. With the original music by independent music icons Cynthia Alexander and Joey Ayala, Pusong Wagas is an original contemporary ballet based on the legend of the city of Mandaluyong. Set in pre-colonial Manila, the story highlights the exemplary love of Luyong, a gifted carpenter, and Manda, a tribal princess, and their sacrifice in the face of the coming foreign invaders.
As an addition to the 2 powerful numbers, Ballet Philippines is also set to perform lllustrated Dialects which is an exquisite lyrical interpretation of the slow-moving romance of Filipino love songs.
