The Tagolwanen Women Weavers Association (TWWA) aims for its weavers to continue the Tagolwanen weaving tradition by incorporating weaving into daily life, and passing on this skill to the young. Weaving is a big part of the indigenous person’s (lumad) identity. The beautiful mats reflect the lumad identity through the designs. Weaving has also helped the Tagolwanen women recognize their own strength and ability. Currently, TWWA has 100 active weavers.

TWWA handwoven products are lovingly made by women of Bukidnon-Tagoloanen tribe with high quality standard. The traditional designs have a unique, timeless beauty that reflects tribal value and beliefs. These designs are formed by hand, strand by strand, into complex patterns. It is made of sodsod grass which is endemic in the province of Bukidnon.
