The Banig Festival of Badian showcases the culture and traditions of the residents of the town. In addition, it also highlights the products offered by the town, including the humble banig. Majority of the wives of the farmers in Badian make an honest wage through banig-weaving.
The process of producing a banig is not easy. It starts with harvesting the leaves of the pandan plant. The pandan plant is the source of the material for the banig made in Badian. The thorns on the leaves are then removed before the leaves are left out to dry for a few days. After the leaves are dried out, they are cut evenly and treated with natural dyes. The dyes give the banig its colorful appearance. The dyed leaves are then weaved into the banig. Aside from weaving the material into a sleeping mat, it can also be made into bags, table mats, tissue holders, and decorations, among others.
