This sweet Ruffle Barong is a new twist to a heritage classic. Made with breezy 100% cotton batiste, it features hand-manipulated embroidery (in a cheerful yellow) featuring AlagadNgSining’s Filipino Tropico IV design.
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, 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 these embroidery designs here.
Each Ruffle Barong is made of 100% cotton batiste with coconut wood 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.
