High-contrast and calligraphic, Ulalong is a typeface that takes its name from the way
the early Visayans are said to begin their year—by spinning fibers for weaving by hand—thereby marking the first month in the pre-colonial calendar of the Visayas.
Ulalong's thicks and thins observe how single strands of thread are slowly
formed into sheets of fine cloth, delicate and elegant.
After the Spaniards arrived in the Philippines, the use of local words is said to have eventually faded and been replaced by the transcriptions of Spanish terms Filipinos now use today. Through this type specimen, let's cherish these long-forgotten gems of our language's past.
