Traditional dress of the Filipino Tboli people. What’s the most interesting thing about it? Their woven ikat designs are inspired by their dreams – they literally sleep and see the patterns in their dreams. Then, a woman wakes up and draws or keeps in memory the pattern she’s seen in her dream. Tboli people believe in lucid dreaming and use it all the time. They consider their weaving patterns to be sent by dead relatives or reached from the generic memory.
