As in the previous years, the fair puts the spotlight on the unsung heroes of the local textile industry. "This year, we want to pay homage to the very makers of the indigenous Filipino textile who are responsible for the development and growth of our locally woven products. With their innate creativity and love for the craft, they empower the local Filipino tradition, culture, and customs to thrive in the modern market,” said HABI Chair Maribel Ongpin.
