In the Ilocos Region in northern Luzon, Philippines, “bunobon” means a seedling or to grow plants from seeds for transplanting. The costume festival pays recognition to hard-working Filipino rice farmers.
@dyemquintero "Bunobon" This ilokano term BUNOBON represents the new and young generation. This costume pays recognition to our unsung heroes, the hard-working Filipino Rice Farmers, that gave every Filipino household the opportunity to be fed with our country’s staple food. They thrive even as they feed a country that does not always appreciate them. This is a glam up rice farmer costume full of rhinestone, gems and crystals. It also the representation of good harvest. #elyucanodesigner #dyemcreation #ricefestival2022 ♬ Samba Brazil – miskaudio
