Yabang Pinoy!

In recent years, Baller ID Bands have become a symbol of many things. It started with NBA players as sports apparel made by Nike, Adidas and Reebok, among others, until it became part of youth fashion. It has then evolved into campaign materials for personal and social causes until the idea came into a Filipino mind but with a twist. Instead of using rubber, the brain behind “yabang pinoy band” made use of “abacca,” a native material which is abundant in the Philippines.


The “yabang pinoy band” it is not only a campaign to make use of “abacca” as a raw material but it is a part of a larger campaign to promote, patronize and use “Filipino” with the end purpose of being proud to be Pinoys!

I got mine a year ago and I am “yabang pinoy number 977.” I have been wearing it since then (it goes well with my barong!) and I had pleasure of explaining what it means every time someone notices it.

Ipag yabang ang pagiging Pinoy!

    That would be a good ad for the Philippines. When my husband came there, he thought Philippines is a country worth seeing but advertising the country is down low. He had a lot to say about the country.
