Description

The kambut (man’s waist sash) is a prime sample of the skill and artistry of Tausug women, who are among the most accomplished weavers in the Philippines, especially in the tapestry weaving technique. It usually features geometric patterns with stark, alternating colors. Silk imported from China was the preferred material. Depending on the length, the kambut can be wrapped around the waist several times.
