Ifugaos Artworks (Textile)
The term Ifugao means people from the hills that is why non-Cordillera called them Igorots but they prefer the first name. Their arts and culture revolves around rice as a prestigious crop. Their legends tell that the first grains of rice are given to men by the gods.
The Ifugao weave a loincloth called ikat which is actually an Indonesian term, meaning to bind together. Their motif is characterized by diamond stripes of while and red stripes. The dominant color is blue.
