***Due to the weather, Charlene Tan's "Kumot ng Bata" (child’s blanket) weave design ribbon cutting and unveiling is postponed. New date will be announce soon.
**Charlene Tan’s weave design is based on a kumot ng bata (child blanket) labeled “Banda para llevar al niño” by José Rizal, a polymath and Filipino nationalist. This kumot ng bata (child blanket) is an example of Mindanao tritik cloth that is created with waxed thread embroidered into patterns that act as a resist during the dyeing process, only to be cut and removed. Leaving undyed patterns to integrate in CCM’s architecture.
