THE ART OF WEAVING
sinawali ~ from 'sawali', the woven bamboo walls of nipa huts; Sinawali teaches rhythm, timing and weaving-like motions in Filipino Martial Arts.
Sinawali aims to promote
Filipino Martial Arts, Nature & Culture;
by advocating the use and production of local, sustainable resources (like cotton and bamboo),
by providing employment to Filipino people in remote places &
by encouraging a plastic-free (Martial Arts) lifestyle.
Aside from working with weavers from remote communities and as such helping sustain the traditional art of hand-loom weaves, we collaborate with local communities that work closely with endemic Philippine bamboo. Together we are re-inventing the use of bamboo and traditional textiles in creating (Filipino) Martial Arts training gear.
