Description

This Tingguian blanket or uwes features images of horses (sinan-kabayo) and figures holding hands (sinan-agkibkibin). Patterns are created using a supplementary weft or pinilian technique. This means that two weft threads pass horizontally through the fabric on each row, one in a plain weave to serve as the support for the fabric and a secondary or supplementary thread to float over the warp (vertical threads) to create distinct patterns.
