Victoria Marawi Jacket / Burgundy / Medium
Herman & Co
Bea Constantino of Herman & Co. puts her own spin on the classic bomber jacket by combining indigenous handwoven textile from Marawi with dead-stock fabric, leftovers from the fashion industry - sustainable fashion at its finest!
MARANAO OF MARAWI:
The textile used for this particular Victoria jacket is handwoven by Maranao women from Marawi, who were displaced due to the 2017 siege in their city.
The Maranao people have lived on the Southern Philippine island of Mindanao since at least the 13th century. "Maranao" means "people of the lake" referring to Lake Lanao in the province of Lanao del Sur.
Sinagtala PH is a non-profit organization that led the program in teaching 50 women how to weave, to empower them, provide livelihood and continue this traditional craft that has been part of their culture for generations.
The pattern of the weave symbolize war and grief, hence the sharp up and down patterns.
