COVER STORY

Sun.Star Cebu Weekend - - Content -

Tra­di­tion­ally woven with dried palm fronds, the buyot or bay­ong played an es­sen­tial part in the ev­ery­day lives of Filipinos, such as trips to the mar­ket or as carrier for prized fighting cocks. From its hum­ble but no less col­or­ful be­gin­nings, here we see the buyot, along­side other hand­crafted bags, rein­vented to high­light Philip­pine ar­ti­san­ship to a broader glo­cal au­di­ence of bag lovers.
