Banig products are woven from grasses such as Tikog and Romblon, and have vibrant colors and patterns.
Banig bags, banig mats and banig placemats can add a lovely pop of color to any home. Bring back the Banig mats for friends who are into camping or the outdoors, and Banig bags for those who love fashion with a funky touch.
The sleeping mats can be slightly tricky for travel, unless you have enough space in your bag for something about the size of a rolled yoga mat. Otherwise, the placemats are a better option if you are low on space.
