- Many Filipinos grew up with having “kulambo” while sleeping

- An online seller came up with “kulambo socks” for convenience
Many Filipinos are used to having “kulambo” or mosquito nets when sleeping. Sometimes, kulambo becomes a necessity because some Filipinos cannot sleep without it.
KAMI learned that online seller Monica Bianca came up with the “kulambo socks.”
"Parang naisip ko na why not, magbenta ako ng kulambo socks since marami akong kilalang friends and mga college classmates before na gumagamit ng kulambo socks na hindi talaga makatulog," Bianca told GMA News’ 24 Oras.
The “kulambo socks” are made from mosquito net that has been cut into a shape of a sock and it comes in different colors.
A citizen named Frederic Hilongo shared how he cannot sleep without his kulambo.
"Kinakaskas ko siya sa paa ko. ‘Di ako nakakatulog kapag wala siya,” Hilongo said.
"Hindi bale nang walang asawa, basta may kulambo, eh," he added.
Hilongo shared that he had been using kulambo ever since he was 6-years-old and that he became so attached to it.
Now, with the “kulambo socks,” Hilongo can bring and wear it anywhere he sleeps.
