Summary:
The Yakans are the traditional settlers of Basilan Island in the Southern Philippines. They are famous for their art of weaving and best known for their beautifully woven traditional costumes of cotton and pineapple cloth. Their skills have been handed down from generation to generation, and the intricate designs of their fabric are said to be based on their dreams. Today the Yakan women continue to weave a rich and colourful tapestry of life stories, preserving their vanishing art in spite of the challenge from both the environment and increased modernism.
