Anyone who wants to see the meticulous process of traditional cloth weaving practiced for ages by Cordillera women can go to Easter Weaving Room in Baguio City. The weaving room is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. “Many companies do not allow their customers to enter the work area. But not the Easter Weaving Room. We are proud to show the world how our native weavers produce export-quality materials. Cordillera women have a natural talent for weaving,” says Virginia Doligas, who manages EWRI. People who are fond of handwoven products and native fabrics will be mesmerized by the colorful indigenous clothes, shoes and bags hand-loomed by expert weavers from Benguet, Apayao, Mt. Province and Apayao. Doligas says that they provide livelihood for young mothers by training them on making handwoven table runners, bed linens, bags, wallets, purses, footwear and rugs.
