What is it about tabo that we Filipinos can’t live without it? Apart from hygienic reasons, is it because of frugality and the desire to conserve water? Or is it because of the many traditions and culture that got mixed up and lost along the way, tabo, has been one of our constants?
Our ancestors used tabo for several purposes. It’s originally made of coconut and bamboo, one strong proof of how resourceful we Filipinos really are. As years went by, the tabo evolved into many colors, sizes, and even shapes! And today, friends, let me introduce you to the puting tabo and other trendy minimalist bathroom items for the modern Filipino restroom.
