Binakol Pouch (Medium)

225

Binakol is a Filipino textile pattern indigenous to Ilokanos and Itnegs communities of the Ilocos and Cordillera Region in the Philippines. It is woven in two colours forming geometric patterns of squares and rectangles that gives an optical illusion of spiring circles resembling that of whirlwinds (alipugpog), whirlpool (kusikos) and fans (pinalpal-id) to create a dizzying effect that is believed to drive away bad spirits. This fabric was also used as a sail on boats to calm the winds and waters and seek protection from the spirits.
