Why Binuatan Weaving Center is special ?

Binuatan Weaving Center, or also known as Binuatan Creations Handloom Weaving is a well-known handicraft shop that manufactures handloom woven products utilizing Palawan’s indigenous fibers. The goal of the company is to transform field grasses and fibers that can be found in Palawan into useful and functional products. Binuatan is a cuyonin word (native Palawan dialect) for creation. Here, they transform locally sourced materials like amumuting, buri, or abaca fibers into great exported goods like placemats, hand bags, blinds, and other products. As expected, Binuatan Creations is very successful that they get their products exported to other countries like the U.S.A.
