This publication features the 'T'nalak' cloth made by the indigenous T'boli weavers of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato, Mindanao. 'T'nalak' patterns are often handed down by a previous generation of weavers or a 'recollection of a dream', thus it is also referred to as a 'dreamweave'. This book is a catalog of every single design known to the T'boli weavers at the end of the millennium. It also includes profiles of the most highly regarded weavers of Lake Sebu. The various cloths featured in the book have been donated to the National Museum of the Philippines and form part of its permanent textile collection.
