Tracing Malong/Guhit ng Malong centres around the malong, the traditional tube-like and intricately printed fabric associated with Mindanao in the southern part of the Philippines. The malong is one of the quintessential icons of Mindanao – the fabric of a hundred uses, from a blanket, a prayer mat, a baby-carrier, a skirt, a head cover, a baby hammock, a fruit basket, a sleeping bag, and so many more uses.

Tracing Malong/Guhit ng Malong is a fundraiser to help support the programs of Migrante BC in organizing, educating and empowering Filipino migrant and immigrants.
