Hinabi Textile Lab: tracing indigenous, contemporary, and global textile traditions and intersections

Hinabi Textile Lab: tracing indigenous, contemporary, and global textile traditions and intersections is a multi-disciplinary exploration using research, curatorial, education, and archiving practices to excavate, decolonize, archive, and engage with indigenous Philippine textiles and textile-making practices.

The project encompasses:

  • Publication of Textiles of the Philippines resource book
  • Interactive and intergenerational education programs and materials
  • Community weaving and public programs and presentations
  •  A growing library of resources on weaving and textile practices from around the world
  • Immersive installation exploring intersections between indigenous, contemporary, and global textile traditions

Hinabi Textile Lab was featured in CROSSLINES: A Culture Lab on Intersectionality presented by Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center at the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building in May 2016.
