Even before the Spanish colonial times, Jaro was one of the towns in Iloilo known to have a tradition for weaving “hablon” patterns in Ilonggo using handlooms. One of the most popular ways to use the versatile “hablon” fabric was as “patadyongs” that were worn by ordinary Filipino women and men as everyday skirts and bottoms. However for the Ilonggos, the “hablon” served more than this purpose — they were your ordinary indispensable items that proudly contributed to the ordinary hardworking Ilonggos’ way of life: for washing in the river, removing one’s sweat from the toil of labor, and protection from the rain and heat.
