This Unisex Art Deco Short Sleeved Barong, hand-dyed in a rich jade colour, boasts an epic batok embroidery pattern, meaning the design is not only in the front chest area and extended up towards the shoulders, but it is also across the upper back (in a v-shape) and the upper sleeves.
The first of AlagadNgSining’s Filipino Deco series features the Philippines’ most fragrant ornamental flowers, set on a back drop of a slim cut and fully open button-down modern classic short-sleeved barong. Read more about the inspiration behind this gorgeous embroidery design here.
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.
