Traditionally worn as a head piece by male leaders such as chieftains and warriors in tribal communities in the Philippines. The pieces are first woven on a loom by hand, then tied and handed, then beaded and adorned with hand-made pom-poms. Due to the precious artisan nature of the tangkulo, each one is unique and one-of-a-kind, and are limited in supply.
Manila Collectible works with indigenous tribes by supporting and celebrating their cultures. The tangkulo can be worn as a scarf and creates awareness of these rich culture that we must preserve.
