Bukidnon DTI promotes'Tikog' weaving business

by Ruby Lenora R. Balistoy

Malaybalay City, Bukidnon (19 June) -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in the city is promoting the use of'Tikog-made' floormats, carpets, purse, pouches and various'tikog' products potential for creating future markets for the Gifts, Toys and Housewares (GTH) sector.

DTI Provincial Director Ermedio Abang said a series of trainings on'tikog' weaving are being conducted in selected towns involving farmers' cooperatives and women's organizations in support to the government's Comprehensive Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP).

The beneficiaries are the Impasug-ong Women's Organization, the Dahilayan Farmers' Multi-purpose cooperative in Manolo Fortich and the Pigtauranan Rural Improvement Club of Pangantucan.

Tikog (Fimbristylis utilis), belongs to the grass family. It has been popular as an excellent material for weaving quality mats which are abundant in most areas of Bukidnon. It is one of the indigenous materials used in making handbags as alternative for plastic shopping bags.

Bukidnon DTI-CLEEP Coordinator Carlos Labis said they are urging business entrepreneurs in the province to try investing in the Tikog industry as this will not only provide livelihood opportunities but also encourage new solutions to environmental ruins such as ozone layer depletion caused by misuse of plastic wrappers / bags.
