Hello Pamela,
As your textile fans has been clamoring for years, here's the most comprehensive website for Philippine tribal weaves that they would certainly adore.  Please go to www.tribo.org and you'll find the most exquisite fabrics hand-woven in the Philippines in living color!  It was compiled by Ken Ilio of Chicago and he certainly did a fantastic job!  Enjoy.
Best regards,

Edgar Cansino
