A 30-minute ride away from Tacloban, just across the San Juanico Bridge is a small seaside town known as Basey. Basey means beautiful and truly this place will charm you.
This is Jose Rizal's park.
The women buy the mats or banig made from tikog from the people living in the Golden River. However, since it is planting season right now, the mat delivery has been few and slow.
These are the dyed buri that the embroiderers use when executing designs on the banig or mat.
Here are sample products:
|3-in-1 boxes. You can sit on them and store some things inside.|
|More storage boxes with soft cushions.|
|Table runners on the ground. More mats at the back and bags hanging on the ceiling.|
|Colorful family sized mat for the beach, for picnic or for your home.|
