It’s slowly but surely. The Negros Nine abaca weavers are little by little getting recognized locally and abroad. As they honed their skills day by day, amidst the long trail to Negros Nine headquarter and their household chores and responsibilities, things are looking good for the weavers. Just recently, an Australian school signified their intention of obtaining products such scarf and shawl for their students’ school uniforms.

Kudos ladies of Negros Nine!
