Philippines has so much to offer when it comes to fine hand-embroidery... Though a lot of changes were made over the years, and that includes significant changes on the face of Philippine embroidery, there are still communities that continue the tradition in hand-embroidery.
The photos below are just examples of what embroiderers from Southern Luzon still do up to these days... hand-embroidered pina and jusi.
Can you imagine doing this tiny and detailed embroidery? This is what I'm planning to learn on my next trip back home. I will be spending some quality time in the community to study and do further research about our national cloth.
