This handcrafted T’boli beaded belt, Hilet Lemimet is handcrafted by the T’boli people of Mindanao.
“Hilet Tahu is the bronze brass belt which is heavy one and is difficult to produce. It came from the melting bronze from guns, rifle, and the gong. Hilet Tahu is protecting us from bad spirit. GOD is powerful to send us the TAU FUN or goddess. Hilet Lemimet is the name for the beaded belt. It is lighter and 52-54 threads to form straight and cross insert to beads to make the right design. The common design is the triangle for the royalty of a family.” - Sarangani Katutubo
