This was part of our city tour during the third day of the AirPhil Express Familiarization Tour of Puerto Princesa last June 24-26. We went here after visiting Mitra's Ranch and Bakers Hill-both of which I haven't been to before. I will also blog separately about those two soon but for now, the spotlight is about Binuatan Creations.
this is where it is created
We went straight to their showroom where we saw a few workers actually weaving. It was fun looking at how they patiently create these products one fiber at a time the traditional way. One can interact and ask questions. As a matter of fact, they will allow you to try it yourself should you want to. We went around freely and tried to understand how it works. I was busy taking photos of coarse.
Export quality products like bags, placemats, table runners, window blinds and curtains, ref covers and coaster wall hangers are available and could be bought from their store just beside the showroom.
shop till you drop with these hand woven products available for the taking. They are colorful and tempting. Just make sure though that you have enough baggage allowance if you do so. hahaha. The whole thing is a community based program so when you dish out the cash, you sure are helping local people. Talk about guilt-free shopping!!!
AirPhil Express flies twice daily to Puerto Prinsesa Palawan.
