Cooperative of Women in Health Development (COWHED) was established in 1995 by T’boli women residing in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. The majority of their members are from the T’boli Tribe. COWHED is a multi-purpose cooperative and has more than ninety women members.


The sale of their products is being used to finance the care of their community’s health and other development projects. They have organized the dreamweavers (20 women-weavers), 5 sewers and embroiderers and craftswomen.

The T’bolis, endowed with their artistic sensitivity weave the T’nalak, a beautiful and dramatic hand-woven fabric. It is often used as blankets but later designs are used for bags, placemats, wall decors and book covers.
T’bolis also make unique jewelries out of glass and plastic beads, horse hair, brass, and bamboo twigs.

When you buy COWHED products, you support the T’bolis in their livelihood as well as other workers.
