The Embroidery Capital of the Philippines, or Lumban, is a town in Laguna where the finest Filipinianas are made. The town’s name is believed to have come from the Lumbang tree. It is the town’s pride to have the tradition of embroidery, because this is where most of the traditional Pinoy wears such as Barongs are made. It shares the famed Lake Caliraya, which is a man-made lake often visited by tourists which offer different kinds of water sports, aside from Lumban and Kalayaan.
