BINAKOL - SINAN IKAMEN (MAT DESIGN)

  • Upcycled cotton polyester thread
  • Width 24"
The psychedelic patterns of the Binakol are traditionally used for blankets but have also proven to be stunning worn. The Sinan Ikamen pattern of Binakol is a medley of checkers and fine stripes made to appear like they "overlap."

BINAKOL - KUSIKOS (WHIRLWIND)

  • Upcycled cotton polyester thread
  • Width 24"
The indigenous peoples of the Cordilleras use the striking patterns of the Binakol to ward off evil spirits. The Kusikos ("whirlwind") pattern makes it clear how it serves that end - playing on the shortcomings of vision and forming spherical figures by manipulating a simple checkered pattern.
