Legendary Dreamweaver Lang Dulay inspires SM City Gen. Santos’ June 12th Centerpiece

Enthused by the very famous iconic cloth of Region XII, the t’nalak abaca fiber, SM City General Santos exceptionally celebrates the 117th Philippine Independence by featuring it, highlighted in the colors of the Philippine Flag, the mall’s centerpiece at The Event Center.

The concept of looming with the T’nalak Abaca Fiber aims to pay tribute to the Tboli tribe’s legendary figure and great ambassadress of the art of cultural T’nalak Weaving, Lang Dulay, who just died last April 30, 2015.

T’NALAK ABACA FIBER CENTERPIECE INSPIRED BY NATIONAL TREASURE LANG DULAY.

T’nalak is a traditional handwoven cloth made of Abaca fibers. It is a heritage passed on to the T’boli women where the intricate and creative patterns of the T’nalak are based on their dreams, hence their names, the “dreamweavers”.

Foremost Dreamweaver Lang Dulay was awarded by the National Commission for the Culture and Arts (NCCA) the “Gawad sa Manlilikha ng Bayan (MAKABA)” award in 1998. Her ability and expertise in T’nalak weaving gave her the opportunity to serve the country for 17 years as a National Living Treasure. Lang Dulay – being a highly-respected Tboli princess known as “Region XII’s Dreamweaver” – kept her people’s tradition alive.

The Independence Day Centerpiece is alongside the T’nalak Cloth Collection signed and originally designed by the Master Weaver Lang Dulay and pooled by the Artistic Director, Leonardo Rey Salazar “Bing” Cariño who will also feature the “Philippine Head Adornment” Exhibit showing more than 40 headdresses from different places in the Philippines. These headdresses are made from natural materials endemic to the place of origin which are important Filipino ornaments for visual identity.
