Woman's Blouse

Blouse for female use. Clothing is influenced by numerous factors such as social class, beliefs, climate and flora. In the past, clothing was very different between the different ethnic groups, and it also symbolized belonging to a certain group, town or social class. Among the popular classes, clothing was made of cotton, abaca or bark cloth. Men's clothing generally consisted of a shirt and pants or a loincloth. Characteristic features of women's bukidnon clothing are a voluminous, and not narrow skirt, and a rather long male shirt. Generally the garments are made of cotton and the decorative motifs are applied with fabrics of different colors and are complemented with embroidery.
