This Peplum Barong is a beautifully tailored piece with a stylized bishop sleeve and ever-flattering classic, pleated peplum, featuring Alagadngsining's embroidery design from the Filipino Tropico Series.
The Philippines is both a hotspot and a mega-diversity area, making it a priority for conservation. The country’s forests are habitat for more than 6,000 plant species and numerous bird and animal species, including the critically endangered ones. Exceptionally lush and full of life, the Filipino Tropico is a series of embroidery designs conceptualized and illustrated by Alagadngsining, VINTA's in-house surface designer and artist. Read more about each species featured in this particular design (Fiipino Tropico I) here.
Each Peplum Barong is made of 30% silk / 70% cotton blend fabric (sourced directly and made in South Korea) with mother of pearl buttons. Each barong is handcrafted by Master Lita and the VINTA Gallery team in our atelier in the Philippines. Hand-manipulated machine embroidery is now also done in our atelier by Josefina.
