Piña Shawl 07
Known as the Queen of Philippine Fabrics, Pina Cloth is one of the legacies left to us by the Spaniards during their occupation of our country. This was the prime material used in making barong tagalogs and saya in the days of our ancestors. Back then, going to mass, parties and just dressing up means donning pineapple fabrics. Making Pina Cloth is a painstakingly long process, sometimes takes months before it transforms into a wearable outfit. Since the barong and saya are “National Costumes,” each barong and saya made of pina cloth are National Treasures of the Filipino Culture. Pina Cloth is very soft and luxurious despite its appearance, durable and can stand the test of time.
