Binakol

Binakol
From the Floy Quintos Collection

This blanket was woven using the binakol technique, featuring the kasikus or whirlwind design.

Negative and positive colored threads are arranged in the form of graduated rectangles emanating from a central rectangle(grey) giving an illusion of movement as of a whirlwind.

Symmetries of the pattern include:

  • 180° rotation about the center of each central rectangle
  • Reflections with vertical and horizontal reflection axes that intersect at a center of 180° rotation

Symmetry group of the planar pattern is of type pmm.
