A cigarette and snack food vendor outside a clothes shop in Davao's Chinatown creates a handmade mat out of scrap cloth.
The eye-catching mat was (unfortunately) not for sale, and for personal use only.
The lady used old clothes from her home, varying the colors as unique scraps ran out. The result is random but beautiful.
The technique, she said, is similar to crochet. Care must be taken to cut the strips uniformly.
The whole process seemed therapeutic and a worthy use of time.
