Sarakat Bags

The municipality is known for its indigenous weaving tradition. It has become known for its Sarakat-made ikamen or banig (woven mat) and sinamay made of piña or banana fiber.

Sarakat is the local term for pandan leaves endemic to the town. The Sarakat conservation, regulation, and propagation initiative is continuously conducted. The municipality developed the weaving industry in 2006 with only 15 women weavers. They organized Sarakat Movers which eventually evolved and grew into Santa Praxedes Sarakat Weavers Association.


Gamet is a seasonal seaweed like the Japanese nori that grows on sharp coral stones jutting along the craggy coastlines of Santa Praxedes. The seaweed grows in abundance during the colder months starting in November and ending March.

Learning about its economic value, the Local Government Unit has invested in technology to process gamet into edible and delicious ingredients.
