SM Davao celebrates National Heritage month with "Habi"

Habi (to weave) is the art of interlacing strands or materials in order to create a joint structure.

While costumes echo the rules of a culture, it brings together strands of history. With this, it is said that weavers and their artistry are forever preserved through civilizations.

In the Philippines, weaving has been performed since pre-colonial times. This is manifested in the distinct weaving products unique to specific ethnic groups. Philippine weaving has developed a range from different kinds of textile, motif, and method of production.

In celebration of the National Heritage month, SM City Davao in cooperation with the Filipino Heritage Foundation, Inc. presents Habi: An Exhibit by Alfonso ‘Boy’ Guino-o on May 20-29 at the SM Davao Event Centre.

Habi’ serves as a tribute to the country’s ancestral and modern weavers, a recognition to their skills, and a celebration of tradition and artistry.

The exhibit is also made possible by Department of Tourism, Davao Region Tourism Council, Casino Filipino, and Southern Philippines Foundation for the Arts and Ecology.

Catch this dazzling kaleidoscope of colors, patterns and textures at SM City Davao—where we all come together.
