(CLOCKWISE, FROM TOP LEFT)
This corner on the second floor of the shop houses various supplies as well as inabel fabrics.
You can’t miss Balay Ni Atong, thanks to this gate in bright, primary colors.
Atop Al’s home is his office. This nook just outside the open-air bathroom holds a chest brimming with more inabel. Just outside the window is a view of a sleepy pasture.
Showcased in the office are these pillows dressed in differently patterned inabel. Behind this bamboo sofa is the balcony, which overlooks a small swimming pool.
An assortment of woven baskets serve as hanging decor in this breezy work place. Opposite this vignette is Al’s work area dressed up in flamboyant Oriental hanging lamps.
There is no shortage of colors and assorted décor in Al’s office. Showcased here are an eclectic mix of pieces he has collected from trade shows, travels, or friends.
(FAR LEFT) The area upstairs is where Balay ni Atong’s products are crafted. Inabel are made into bags or tablecloths (and other items) that feature pretty patterns.
