I loaded up today on the main website a short illustrated article by Nick Fielding on the Aljamelah Inaul Weaving and Sewing Center - Mindanao, southern Philippines ... g_Cntr.htm As Nick said to me when suggesting that the information might form an article,
'situated in Cotabato City, few people venture here because of the ongoing security situation in this predominantly moslem area. However, this centre is trying to recreate the textiles that were once common in the region, particularly the malong, which you may know from Malaysia/Indonesia...... I think the people there would be delighted to hear of any outside interest.'

If there is any feedback or anyone manages to visit the Center please post a comment here.

Hi Pamela, thank you for bringing my attention to this post :)
That malong / sarong that Mr Fielding and assistant is holding is very interesting.

I can see the Malay influence in the central "pucuk rebung" or bamboo shoot pattern. I also see a bit of a pattern that looks like a jlamprang or chahabadi bhat in warp ikat(?).

I'll go check out the article now :)
