Nehru Tibo Barong Tunic

Nehru Tibo Barong Tunic



Tibo (‘tee-bo’), slang in Tagalog for “tomboy”, is a women’s barong tunic dress. The barong is commonly known as men’s garment, though there have been many women’s versions created and worn over the years. This barong tunic is a take from the Classic Mens Barong, and offers a dose of contemporary femininity with an elongated hi-low hemline. This versatile garment can be worn as a dress or as a top.

This version of our signature Tibo features a Nehru collar and elbow length cuffed sleeves with machine embroidered silk cocoon (100% silk organza). Each size has a different embroidered motif, featuring the work of artisans in Taal, Batangas.

This garment can be fully customized (dyed to match bridal motif colours, length etc). Please see the couture page to see more possibilities: click here.

Each Nehru Tibo Barong Tunic is handcrafted by Master Lita and the VINTA Gallery team in our atelier in the Philippines.
