About the Inabel Weaving of Ilocos


Inabel weaving, also known as "Abel," is a traditional weaving technique that originated in the northern region of the Philippines, particularly in the province of Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. The product of this method, Inabel fabrics, are known for their intricate patterns, vibrant colors, and delicate textures made from locally grown cotton or a combination of cotton and other fibers like pineapple or silk.

The weaving process is usually done using a traditional wooden loom operated manually by skilled weavers who use different techniques to create various patterns and designs, which often have cultural significance and represent the heritage and history of the Ilocano people.

Inabel fabrics make woven products, such as traditional garments like Barong Tagalog, everyday home textiles like towels, table runners, wall hangings, blankets, and accessories like scarves and bags.

Inabel weaving not only sustains the traditional craft and skills of the Ilocano people but also serves as an essential source of income for local communities. It plays a vital role in preserving the rich culture of the Philippines and is recognized as a necessary part of the country's heritage.


Inabel weaving is vital to our country’s cultural heritage and art. Be part of a community that preserves this art form while adorning your home or accessorizing yourself with these Inabel woven products by Ilocano loom weavers themselves.
