MASN holds research session with Ifugao weavers

MASN President Mitzie Icasiano conducted the second phase of her Ifugao textile motifs research last Dec 28, 2010--the first phase of which was carried out in US museums through a grant from the Asian Cultural Council last year.  Held at the Banaue View Inn, the day-long activity was attended by two generations of Ifugao ikat weavers.   The session aimed to communicate to the weavers the research findings of Icasiano from the collections of museums in the US, with a view to restoring the forgotten motifs into the weavers' new textile creations.
