Rights : In Copyright - Educational Use Permitted

Abstract : "Moro weaving has been largely influenced by tattoo designs. Tattooing, however, has been early discouraged, because it is a very cruel practice. The principal designs are based upon the crocodile, man, butterfly, flag and flower. The Moro process of weaving is very primitive. It is made of bamboo and simple pieces of wood. Raw materials of cotton and silk are used by the Moros when they weave on their primitive looms to produce a distinct type of Philippine cloth. The Moro weavers use a very interesting process of dyeing cloths. This is called the ""tie and dye"" process.
