Philippine Tribal Costumes

Map of the Philippines

Although the Philippines has developed a mixed culture from the blending of foreign influences with native elements, there are still some ethnological groups whose culture remains unadulterated.
Here are some beautiful images of the Filipinos tribal costumes that still remain as part of their traditional culture up to this day.

  1. Thank you for sharing all your images. I love how people take an interest in ethnic costumes. I believe if people want to preserve their cultural heritage, they should strive to do as you have.

    Thank you again.

  3. hi! My brother is in charge of a "cultural diversity" activity in their work in San Jose California. He is thinking of wearing a diverse filipino costume (not the usual barong tagalog). What can you suggest? materials should be easy to access/source out. Thanks a lot.
