Patadyong is a multi-colored fabric, also a hablon product, worn by Filipino women in pre-colonial Philippines. It is still worn today by older women in the provinces, especially in the Visayas region. It is worn like a loose skirt, knotted on the waist. It is also worn as a sling and used to carry a baby so the mother's hands are free to do other chores.
Hablon are made into shawls, barong (a formal Filipino garment), dresses and gowns, home textile and scarves.
