Aruga Top in Pinilian
This variant is currently sold out
Our Aruga shoulder top (meaning take care & nurture) can be worn in 4 different ways - off-shoulder (pattern and solid), on-shoulder and removed to wear as a flowy tube top. Our sleeves feature an Indigenous handwoven textile, known as "Pinilian" and is ethically sourced from female artisan weavers from the Sabangan Community in Ilocos Sur. Pinilian is characterized by a skillful brocade weaving technique, where the design creates the appearance that it is floating on the fabric. This Pinilian pattern is described as "karayen ken sinan sarong nga bitwen" which means river and star-like flowers in Ilocano.
