Bahay Kubo 90x90 Silk Scarf
“Bahay Kubo, Kahit Munti. Ang halaman doon ay sari-sari.” In Filipino culture, the Bahay Kubo is not only a traditional house made of bamboo and nipa leaves, but also a symbol of unity and family.Inspired by the local folk song that portrays the simple life in the countryside, the bahay kubo is surrounded by various local herbs and vegetables, as illustrated on the scarf.This design brings together the artist’s cultural heritage of being Chinese Filipino, with the verse written in beautiful calligraphy using the chinoiserie blue and white motif.
MATERIAL & CRAFTSMANSHIP: Smooth and lustrous, this JIM Weaver scarf is made of 100% natural silk twill and is 90×90 cm big. Hems are hand-rolled, so no two scarves are alike. Natural silk can last a lifetime with proper care. We recommend dry-cleaning only and no hot iron for best results.
PACKAGING: Your scarf will be delivered in a free gift box and tied with a ribbon. Inside, each scarf will be wrapped in Japanese paper and comes with a card insert that describes the design inspiration and care instructions.
ARTIST INFO: A visual storyteller at heart, Isabelle Ocier is a Filipino artist and graphic designer who combines her love for travel, books, and whimsy with her penchant for mixing her favored art mediums—acrylic, watercolor, digital styling, and modern calligraphy—into single frames. As the Creative Director at JIM Weaver, she enjoys sneaking quirky easter eggs into her mostly grown-up designs.
