“Tiyargo” is summer in Ifugao. It is our most productive knitting season in between planting and harvesting! Our Tiyargo tote is 100% handknit with cotton rope and chunky knitting needles.
It measures approximately 10" in height and 20 1/2" in length (at the top/widest). The base is about 10" x 11" in size. Do remember that each bag is knit by hand and may vary slightly in size.
Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
