Unusual Pidayit men's barongs are made from silk organza fabric. Each piece of clothing is uniquely designed, adorned with handcrafted doily pattern fabrics, miniature hand-embroidered flowers, and various beads. Hence no two items are alike. One barong takes about three months to make from scratch. Woven with Monaco thread by a community of stay-at-home wives and out-of-school youth, who all underwent rigid training as part of Pidayit's sustainable livelihood project in different parts of Pampanga.
