The Yakans are the traditional settlers of Basilan Island in the Southern Philippines, famous for their art of weaving. Their skills have been handed down from generation to generation, and the intricate designs of their fabric are said to be based on their dreams. Get to know the Yakan women as they endeavour to preserve their vanishing art – challenged by a chronic conflict environment and increased modernism – and continue to weave a rich and colourful tapestry of life stories.
