Binakul - Traditional Textile Productions
The lady in the photo who does the Binakul in her youngers years can produce more than 10 meters in a day but with her current age she can only produce 28 meters per week. The textile that is produce from Binakul can be a blanket, blouse (just like the blouse worn by the lady), bag and many more.
Currently there are few females who does the Binakul in Vigan. They are still want to preserve this kind or production and younger generations are encourage to do this type of production for textiles. They have this exhibit at the National Museum to increase and promote tourism. In the world of technology today there still creates and produce a textile manually with hand and foot. As the photo shows, the elderly woman (her name which I have forgotten) proudly shows her clothes made from Binakul.
