Cloudy Day in Ilocos Sur - Oversized Hoodie
An artistic representation of a Cloudy Day in Ilocos Sur, Philippines where the Pinilian textile on the hood is handwoven. The complex brocade textile found on the front pocket takes our master weavers in the Philippines an entire day to hand weave just one meter. Our oversized hoodies and wide leg pants are inspired by traditional Filipino fashion: the kamisa, the saya skirt, and workwear barongs.

bago operates in an ethical, slow fashion model. All of our garments are made in Los Angeles. We work with ANTHILL Fabrics to ethically source handwoven textiles directly from weaving communities in the Philippines.
A type of inabel weave that means “chosen” and uses a complicated brocade weave where sticks are inserted on chosen warp (lengthwise) threads. These create designs that “float” on the threads, giving the weave a three-dimensional quality. Designs are mostly representative of nature and their environment.
Pinilian is made by the ethnolinguistic group of the Itneg in the Cordillera region. Pinilian blankets serve prestigious and ceremonial functions rather than utilitarian ones. During the wakes of important members of the group, they are put on display as a sign of wealth. They are also believed to offer protection for the spirits against malevolent beings.
