This gallery showcases the traditional textiles produced by various indigenous and cultural communities in the Philippines. It tells the story of how these textiles were made, the materials in making the cloth, and the technologies they used. On display are different traditional textiles, looms, natural fibers, and dyes. The gallery features a death blanket called kinuttiyan used by the highest members of the Ifugao community known as the kadangyan and the Banton cloth fragments, the oldest textile collection of the NMP and a National Cultural Treasure.
