    This is a handwoven backpack similar to those made in Northern Luzon, Benguet, Baguio, Trinidad area. You can buy this at the market and a lot of the native Ifugaos use it.

    there was a book published by the royal dutch embassy of various things from the philippines, which may have included this.

    the design seems to suggest a particular tribe.. though various back packs are found in baguio city, some of them come from tribes in san fernando, la union or region 2, whereabouts..

    if you can provide a compilation of the photos, it might be possible to meet with folks from the national commission on indigenous peoples, the institute of phil. culture, or friends (anthropologists, over beer) here in the philippines..

    I can probably ask Prof. Bailen if he would like to participate, and other friends, from the UP Anthro Dept, friends who travel, or who work with indigenous Peoples..

    this looks like a backpack/lunchbox made from bamboo. typically used by farmers/villagers to carry their lunch.

    This is a bag typically fashioned or made of bamboo and is still being used today. It is very utilitarian and is worn like the modern backpacks. I see something like this — still being sold in Iloilo City Central Market. I also saw bags that resemble the above in Baguio City.

    Backpack or “pasiking”

    It looks like a bayong.

    A type of pasiking (knapsack). How big is this?

    The design is from Nueva Vizcaya.

    In the Mountain Province this is called a PASIKING (traditional bag/backpack made of rattan).
