Piña

Piña cloth, also known as the Queen of Philippine Fabrics, is taken from the leaves of the pineapple plant ananas comosos. THe pineapple fibers are extracted, washed, dried, split into single strands, and knotted before being woven into a sheer, goassamer-like fabric. It is the most preferred material for wedding and special occasion gowns because of its sheerness, coolness and suitability to embroidery.

Garments of this fabric that date back centuries ago still exist in good condition. What makes it a special part of our heritage is the tradition of weaving and fiber production that has remained the same as it was centuries ago.
