Pasima Bamboo Product Weaving | Things to do in Malasiqui-Pangasinan
|Address:||Pasima, Malasiqui, Pangasinan|
Equipped with decades of woodshop experience, Federico Fernandez, 75, started his own furniture shop in the town on Malasiqui. His ten-year-old shop, Fer-Dez Furniture, produces sofa, chairs, tables, and single and double-deck beds made from locally-sourced trees of manga, acacia, mahogany, and gmelina. Their products are are consumed locally in Pangasinan and other provinces like Nueva Ecija, Cabanatuan City, and Ilocos. His son, currently, owns his own franchise of the business. Together, they have about 10 workers.
Originally a part of San Carlos City, Mary Help of Christians Parish was then transferred to Basista as it parted with San Carlos in 1947 after having a resident priest. Old in its design, Mary Help of Christians Parish continues to serve the people of Basista through its services and education care of Mary Help of Christians Catholic School.
Beautifully woven ropes can be found in the inner barangays of Basista, where tons of ropes made from Abaca and Buli. Originating from Bicol, Mindanao, and Visayas, the abaca is transported to Basista for mass production, and later delivered to different parts of the country for basket products. Buli, meanwhile, can be found within the area. Rope-making in Basista gained recognition when its products were used for a photo that won first prize in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation photo contest. The designs of the ropes vary, from material and color, to weaving style.
