The Barong Tagalog, also known as barong, is a heavy embroidered long sleeved traditional shirt for both men and women, used during festive occasions in the Philippines and other countries around the world. It combines elements from the traditional indigenous Filipino gowns and western European clothing styles. It is popular among Filipino women and other people in the international communities who visit the Philippines and the surrounding islands of Mindanao, Luzon, and Bilao. Most of the common varieties are embroidered with names of family members and holy persons. There are also other barongs that feature intricate floral prints or simple script designs.
