Furniture Art

16 Years ago I bought handwoven fabric from the Ifugao mountain regions of the Philippines. Baguio is a city in the mountain regions that use to have a rich weaving culture. The native Filipino’s in that region are called the Igorots.

Instead of creating clothing, I decided to make furniture art. I had an old wood step stool and I made a pillow top upholstered with the Ifugao handwoven fabric.
