Born from a social enterprise aimed at rebuilding the lives of people displaced by the Marawi Siege, the Maranao Collectibles also managed to resurrect a dying cultural art form. Today, with internally-displaced women and men who were trained to create heirloom langkit weaving, numerous kind of langkit products are now being marketed to the world. Aside from gifting a special someone a beautiful hand-woven Maranao fabric this holiday season, you also help in their advocacy of spreading and preserving the cultural art of langkit weaving.
