Tapa is a strong interest for me. Most of my examples are Melanesian, but I wanted to share some images of rarer, Philippine barkcloth garments in the hope of seeing other examples and eliciting commentary.

The first piece is an Ilongot vest in perfect condition. No clue as to its age, but the handle is quite supple. I've never seen another like it in any collection and I can only speculate that this type of garment hasn’t been made in the Philippines for quite some time.
Next is a pair of very old tapa sashes with a bit of cotton embroidery. I’ve always assumed that these are Northern Philippines, but I’ve never known what tribe produced them and I’m not sure of the fiber stock; any help?
