Bayong ni Kikay

Just got back from the SSIS Bazaar (more on that later) and would just like to share a good find being sold by our fellow kababayans (Filipinos), Bayong ni Kikay.

They’re selling sturdy bayongs (weaved bags) with a “kikay” (dainty) twist.

Their products all look terrific that I had a hard time choosing just one!

I got this seaweed green (I think) with silver and black accent.

Imagine choosing just one from this:

and this:

Meet the enterprising duo Joy Tarrobal and Phen Dizon.

If I see them again in the Saigon Flea Market on the 11th, I might just fold and get another bag!

      Hi Neri. Thanks for your comment. Is this your business: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Stylized-Bayong-Bags/265998313411262 << Stylized Bayong Bags? You have terrific designs.

      Phen and Joy's Bayong ni Kikay designs are different and more true to the bayong form and are available in Ho Chi Minh City.

      God bless on your business in Manila.

      Hi Marivic. Are you in Ho Chi Minh City? If yes, I haven’t seen these designs in a while. It has been a long time. I do find something similar at tourist shops along Dong Khoi. Hope this helps!
