This exquisite piece of Barong Tagalog (the Philippines' national formal attire for men) is made from the finest indigenous materials: Piña, Abaca, Banana, and Jusi (or Silk).
The ornately designed embroidery in this barong is crafted meticulously by hand stitching and by the traditional method, known as Callado (or Calado). It is forming a variety of intricate hole patterns by putting fibers together through stitching.
Combined with the assembly of this barong, done partially by delicate hand sewing, we bring about the best value added quality product possible.
By buying this product, you are helping the local Filipino Callado embroiderers to preserve their traditional hand embroidery technique and support them with an adequate sustainable livelihood.
