Sagada Weaving is one of the more popular souvenir shops in Sagada. Some of their products can be viewed at the KM Amore International website. Below is a user's review on the shop.

Name of Shop: Sagada Weaving

If there's one thing you should consider buying as pasalubong from Sagada, it would have to be the items made out of the Sagadan cloth. Bags, puches, clutches, cellphone holders, wallets, etc... as long as they're made of the colorful cloth which Sagadan weavers make inside their shops (for some).

The Sagada Weaving shop have the best looking products of all but of course, their items are more expensive compared to other stores. I really like their huge sling bag but it's way out of my budget. The little pouches are also cute so you better buy one or two. You can also observe the Sagadans who are weaving / sewing the items just behind the counters.

Aside from this specialty shop. there are lots of souvenir shops scattered all over the place. You can get cheaper items from them and you can still haggle for the price especially if you're buying lots of items.

What To Buy: Items made of Sagadan cloth whoch cost PhP25.00 (bracelets, necklaces, chokers) - PhP900.00 (for big bags)...

The t-shirts sold in Sagada Weaving are also the best looking of them all. The rints are nice and it's not that colorful (they come in black or white or earth colors... which is good coz it makes the shirts look more modern and funky). Price ranges from PhP250.00 - PhP350.00 depending on the sizes and styles.

What To Pay: PhP25.00 to PhP50.00 for the bracelets, necklaces and chokers.
PhP300.00 - PhP1000+ for the bags of several sizes and styles.
PhP50.00 - PhP500.00 for smaller bags, pouches, cases, etc.
PhP250.00 - PhP300.00 for t-shirts

I think weaving can also refer to a person such as weave hair styles. Weaving or the term "weaver" can also refer to ones last name.

thank you kamulo...through your blog we can share our thoughts... i am a full blood igorot too myself,and very proud to be one.i was born in tabuk kalinga and raised there.my father was born in ambasing sagada,thier family migrated to tabuk in the early 50's,my mom is from barlig bontoc,also thier family migrated to tabuk after world war 2,because her father was a veteran soldier during 1st&2nd world war.i have always been fascinated by the igorot culture.and wanted to educate the people who have misconception about US...but then i do not know how...and if one day i do have the means and given the chance...i would love to open a small restaurant and serve authentic igorot cuisine...like real sagada style pinikpikan,dinuguan,sausage rice na luto sa dugo ng baboy,bulalo,and a lot more with the real igorot touch and recipe.but of course it should suit the international taste.i should study culinary and master the secret of cooking first.lol...anyway i am glad i have found your blog.
