The ramit is a textile made by Hanunuo Mangyan women. It is woven on a backstrap loom called harablon which is made out of hardwood. The weaver feels she’s part of the ramit and the harablon when it is strapped on her back. The ramit features varied and intricate geometric patterns that expresses the Mangyans’ ingenuity and artistry.  This ramit design called sinuknap which has patterns that resemble the number 8 is one of the many traditional designs used by the artisans. Minatahan is symbolic of the bird's eye or mata.


All ANTHILL items are made of artisanal hands using hand- loomed fabrics as the focal material. Every piece goes through a slow and rigorous production process. As it is handmade, each weave is unique and you might find inconsistencies on the fabric. We trust that you understand the intricacies of every weave and find beauty in the imperfections.

All weaves used in our apparel line are test washed based on color fastness and shrinkage. As most of these fabrics are a blend of cotton and polyester, they are safe to be machine-washed. If unsure, always play safe and go with hand wash.

WASHING. You may hand wash or machine wash your apparel weaves in cold water using mild detergent at low spin cycle. Hang the clothes to air dry. Zero waste weaves and weaves in natural fiber must be hand washed in cold water.

IRONING. Always set your iron in low to medium heat. Use a spray bottle and spray water to straighten out the wrinkles. Turn the garment inside out when ironing.
