While French lace and Chinese silk are often choice fabrics for wedding wear, there are also unique looks that can only be achieved by using local fabrics such as piña or jusi. Many barongs still use such native material, and each piece can still look unique with specialized embroidery and other little details.
While these local fabrics are traditionally used for formal Filipiniana attire, they can look just as pretty when incorporated into contemporary styles of formal wear. Local fabrics not only have such charming character, but these also reflect the creativity of local artisans.
Some of our real couples showed their love for their Filipino culture by using local fabrics in their wedding attire. The gallery below shows you how to integrate local fabrics into your wedding wear, whether you want something traditional or something more modern.
