Hand Embroidered Pakudos Scarf
Gauzy, deep red with a striking white and navy 'Pakudos' motif, this is our new wardrobe staple! Wrap it around your neck, braid it into your hair or keep as a hanky. The symbol is the 'Pakudos' that is believed to bring protection to the wearer.
Mangyan women take many days to complete these pieces. Embroidery was historically the shortest part of the process as they would plant, harvest, separate, dry, spin, and then weave the cotton fibers. Today, however, the cotton is purchased at the market and then cut, assembled + embroidered.
