Souvenirs from Pandan, Antique: Bariw plant handicrafts


Just before heading to the Malumpati Health Spring Resort, it is highly recommended to drop by the barangay cooperative which is just along the way. The cooperative produces native handwoven products made of bariw plant, the one used to make the native mat locally called "banig." There are floor mats, hats, coasters, beer holder which can also be pen holders, place mats, bags, and fruit baskets. 

Here are some of the products I was able to take a snap:

Big round floor mat which can be used as wall decor (P1,200).
