Rurungan sa Tubod foundation is an organization that teaches women how to weave as a source of alternative livelihood and a form of empowerment.

Established in 1999 to create a textile weaving industry in Puerto Princesa, the foundation teaches weaving of different local fibers and develops products unique to its makers. A true gem in Palawan. Check out their Tepiña and Bin Al Kay brands
