The weaving technique to make the Binakol patterns involves the creative twisting of the threads.  Binakol means to twist in Ilocano.  The designs were influenced by 18th Century Eastern European textiles.  The Binakol weave is characterized by the optical illusion it presents.  It was originally intended to be used to ward off evil spirits.
