More than just a tropical fruit, the leaves of the pineapple plant are also a source of tropical fibers.
The pineapple fiber we use is locally-sourced from Lemery and Passi City in Iloilo.
LIGHT AND DELICATE FIBERSAmong several varieties, the Red Spanish Pineapple is grown for its fibers that are handwoven by artisans on traditional looms to create lightweight and delicate fabrics. Piña fibers can also be blended with other fibers like cotton. Our locally-sourced cotton-piña is made up of 70% cotton and 30% pineapple fiber.
LUXURIOUS, QUALITY FABRICS
Piña fabric is prized for its quality and is commonly used in Philippine traditional clothing such as barong and dresses for formal occasions.
The town of Kalibo in Aklan province leads the production of piña cloth products and weaving industry.
