#299 Weaving Hats

In Boctol, Bulusan, in the province of Sorsogon, we chanced upon an entire community that wove hats from native grass. The grass is indigenous and plentiful. Old and young alike toil all day to turn them into something useful & valuable. Then someone collects them for eventual sale. It's a great way to create livelihood in places that previously produced nothing else. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: An open door or a window ajar, sometimes that's all that's needed to create natural-looking environmental portraits right inside someone's home. As a courtesy, send them a copy of their pictures. A little gratitude goes a long way in these parts.)

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
