The lowly raffia endemic in this land of Francisco Dagohoy is getting the international exposure it deserves. The target: barging into the Guinnes Book of Records for the world’s longest continuous hand-woven raffia fabric.

In Bohol history, this municipality was the seat of the longest revolt of Dagohoy against Spanish tyranny that lasted more than 80 years.

Combining history, heritage and livelihood, Inabanga is trying to build around the raffia industry a calling card in achieving this world record.

All this, will catapult into a big slambang event, never been seen in the history of the town, as it unveiled today the longest woven raffia fabric.

Today’s activity coincides with the town fiesta in honor of St. Paul, the Apostle. The unveiling ceremony marks the launching of the Raffia Festival to be held every year thereafter.

At the helm to push this big marketing shebang is Team Inabanga, the power behind all the progress and development now obtaining in the town under the tutelage of Mayor Jono Jumamoy. And that includes promoting raffia fiber as a cottage industry and therefore one of the sources of livelihood of the townsfolk.  

Today’s rolling out rites see Team Inabanga reaps the fruits of its labor by making public how local loom weavers succeeded in churning out 1.7-kilometer of continuous hand-woven raffia or hinabol nga saguran.

Hinabol nga saguran, or raffia are Inabanga’s hippest products from the buri palm and are traditionally hand-woven from looms here.

Not that saguran is stunning for Inabangnons who have used the woven fabric to dry palay. But with a new product elevated into hinabol, it should generate world attention during its unrolling June 29, this according to Mayor  Jumamoy.

For the momentuous event, he talks about costumed street dancing contingents performing to the pulsating calypso drum beats over oversized festival drums which accompany the unrolling of the gigantic hand-woven table runner announcing the town fiesta from Barangay Lutao to Poblacion.

The youthful mayor also talks about their streets lined with revelers and supporters holding the unrolled fiber. Later that night, attention shifts to the lime-lit catwalks teeming with models clad in raffia inspired garments in an exciting gala fashion show. And yes, food too.  

The craftsmen and creative weavers here spread on that day its masterpiece: possibly the world’s longest continuous hand-woven raffia and to be recognized as the home of the best hand-weavers in the whole world and the raffia capital in the country.  

On that day, the local government team wants no slips.

The objective is to grab enough momentum to mainstream their saguran into a world-class hinabol, now slowly dominating modern lifestyle accents, Mayor Jumamoy said.

And when they do, expect to see a product far from that drab and coarse saguran that immediately comes to mind upon the mention of the fiber mainly for drying palay here.

Inabanga, home to 1910 raffia weavers in 80% of its barangays would be presenting the green and bleached hand-woven hinabol, beating its own target of unrolling a mile-long fiber weave.

But not known to many, for Team Inabanga’s top man said the bid is to spruce up more employment opportunities for Inabanganons whose lives have been intricately woven in the industry.

“One of our biggest challenges to get our people working back in handlooms for the new hinabol, which is now getting high market demand and catch up with the purchase orders,” he shared during a recent interview.

Last years’ most promising Bohol product at the sandugo Showcase, the Inabanga handwoven raffia racked in P40M in gross sales and orders making it the fair’s top-seller.

But with majority of its weavers still learning how to transform the saguran into high-end fine-woven hinabol bearing interesting optical art designs and patterns, Jumamoy said winning the world record boosts 5370 of industry’s support workers into going mainstream.

Too cash-trapped to invite international adjudicators, Inabanga’s bid is now focused by lenses of local and regional media as documentors to validate the product and hopefully generated enough attention for world judges to come and see for the record, the youthful mayor said. (PIA)

Go Inabanga go!  The young Inabanga Mayor has good aim for the good sake of his inhabitants and  reputation  of his town.

Maayo unta ug tua pa ko didto kay apil kog habol.  Raffia weaving is too arduous.  In my elementary days, Gahabol mi sa una ug banig nga saguran called "Petate",(it was sold = 1 Peso for one which was a whole day work ) ug laing banig called "Pat-og"= 30 / 50 centavos usa.

i wonder what drives the filipino to engage in mundane endeavors like doing the longest lechon parade, biggest bukayo, the largest salad bowl, the longest barbecue grill and what have you, and now the longest raffia roll just to get the equally mundane title.

The one purpose of the  municipality of Inabanga is to make aware all consumers section including  institutional buyers, exporters that their products in capacity of excellent quality. We must have not forget that raffia weaving is mostly  from all  residents the number one  source means of livelihood .  They do it with love dedication to their work and let the Inabangnons beam with pride.  On the other hand, a progressive/positive developments is more pleasing than crime reports, isn`t?  If  the Italian baked the longest Pizza in the World why not others has the right to present their hard work?  Why not happy with our poor co-Bol-anons who strive hard in one way or another to be one of the winners?

In this case I suppose it would not be inappropriate to say that the end justifies the means. I would like to believe that the record-making endeavor is not an end in itself, that it is a means towards achieving economic development and a better life for the local folk, a dream which every town, country, and planet has the right to pursue. Inabanga is simply doing a promotional stint. In the context of present-day realities, I find nothing petty nor perverse in this attempt.

Congratulations to Team Inabanga!

By the way, which record were they able to break? Which/Where was the longest saguran before Inabanga set this record?

there is nothing wrong whatsoever with the growing number of filipinos (boholanos included) who go out of their way and expend financial resources and time to get their 15 minutes of fame. anyone trying to achieve it by doing something that is out of the ordinary should be given his chance especially if he owns the resources that he expends, and i believe inabanga deserves credit for their efforts.

what is observable, however, is the fact that people tend to give too much credit for accomplishing something that is very familiar to them and thus are very easily achievable feats.

if italians are credited in the guiness book of world records for baking the largest pizza in the world, it comes as no surprise because pizza is a traditional italian concoction and it's only logical that they excel in it. if pangasinenses are credited by the guiness book of world records for organizing the longest row of sinugbang bangus, it should come as no surprise because everyone knows that pangasinan is the bangus capital in the country. in marikina, people no longer see any big deal about the town being credited for constructing the biggest shoe in the world. this is because marikina is a shoe capital. similarly, if inabangnons are able to make the longest raffia roll in the world, it would not be surprising at all given that inabanga is probably the only place in this tropical patch of earth that uses the particular part of the buri plant to make a weaving material called raffia.

koddi, inabanga probably never really broke any prior record for weaving the longest saguran except probably their own previous record, if there was any at all.

It is possible man gud nga naay record kay dili man lang Inabanga ang producer of raffia rolls.  Mas proud man gud ta kon naay napukan nga record.  Pero kon wa, Inabanga's record will now be the standard for all future attempts at breaking it.
