My 'Kain' dinner napkin series

(woven cotton cloth from Abra, Philippines)

"Kain" means food in Filipino, my native language. We often say "kain!" to invite a visitor, or anybody really, to join us in eating.

My contribution to Lisa and Io's project is a set of four dinner napkins. Using native woven cotton cloth from Abra, Philippines, each napkin bears a photo of a famous Philippine street food and the word "Kain!".

The napkins have been shipped, and hopefully already in Io's PO box. Can't wait to see the entire exhibition. ;)

  1. How exciting. We cannot wait to see these lovely napkins. I am particularly interested in seeing the woven fabric. Thanks so much for taking the time to be a part of our project.
