The Barong, also known as Barong Tagalog, is a traditional, formal men's shirt from the Philippines. VINTA Barongs are a modern take on a beautiful tradition. The VINTA Classic Pechera Barong is made with jusi (poly-silk blend fabric), hand-dyed in house in a gorgeous silver hue and features the traditional half-open cut, with a new modern silhouette, cut closer to the body. The slim silhouette was achieved by adding an invisible zipper at the side seam to assist with easy pull-over. Please note that more often than not, there will be slight variations in overall colour of each garment, and from garment to garment, because the dying process is done by hand, not by machine. These variations serve as the unique and beautiful patina of coloured VINTA Barongs.
This barong has hand-manipulated Neo Classic embroidery design featuring Palay (rice plant), Ylang-ylang, Tayabak (jade vine) and Sampaguita. Arranged in Classic symmetry to invoke Barong Tagalog embroideries of the past.

Material and Care Instructions:
- Each Classic Pechera Barong is made of poly/silk blend fabric with pear effect buttons. Each barong is handcrafted the VINTA Gallery team in our atelier in the Philippines. Hand-manipulated machine embroidery is also done in our atelier.
- Spot or fully hand wash with mild soap, do not wring. Dry flat not in direct sun. Dry clean only when absolutely necessary, to avoid drying out the silk (this causes the fabric to break and tear). Steam, and/or iron on low to medium heat (silk setting).
