Pasima Bamboo Product Weaving
3.73 km away

Seeing a kaing or bilao woven in front of you would make you think why it is a domestic product rather than a handicraft. The Philippines is blessed with many artisans and that include very skilled weavers. In Malasiqui, Pangasinan, Barangay Pasima is known to house bamboo-weavers. They make kaing (woven bamboo basket), bilao (woven bamboo tray), and drying beds. In Pasima, bamboo-weaving is a way of life. It is a family affair - the kids are assigned in weaving the basket’s base, while the mother finish the baskets. Kids aged eight start to help in weaving, while grandmothers also do their share of weaving. Seeing weavers work with bamboo sheets is almost magical as you understand how much effort and skills are needed to create a basket that would sell for only P10 to P12. Try weaving your own bamboo basket!

Lorezco Bricks
6.12 km away

Fancying a brick house? Check out the town of Sta. Barbara, Pangasinan’s upcoming brick town. In the forefront of this realization is Loresco’s Bricks that started wayback 1983. It was the third brickmaker in town. Combining clay, soil, sand, and water, a carabao is used to step on the mixture to mash the ingredients together. After that, the mixture is poured manually on different kinds of molds. For sturdier “lario,” local term for brick, it is pressed. It is now ready for baking. Loresco’s Bricks commence with brick baking twice a year in a walk-in oven, made of layer upon layer of bricks. Still fancying a brick house? A 120 sqm bungalow house needs about 12,000 pieces of bricks for about P72,000 - that’s P6 for a single brick.
