Weekly Photo Challenge: Textured

When was in Kalibo, Aklan in 2000, I got an impulse to buy bags at the local market as souvenirs for that trip. I remembered seeing various designs, colors, shapes and sizes of bags made in Abaca material (Manila Hemp) in dozens of stalls. [The local government of Kalibo really helps its craftsmen to promote earth-friendly handicrafts which are strong as well as popular and fashionable.]

I chose the bags in the photos for their visual and tactile texture; the repetitive lines and over-all rough surface of the design conveyed a message of activeness to me.  It’s been more than a decade when I purchased these bags and guess what…I’m still using them now because they’re still in good condition.
