Passed on from generation to generation, Piña weaving is the oldest industry in Aklan, Philippines, and is a main source of income for Aklanon families. A long and tedious process, it starts with the harvesting of pineapple leaves, followed by vigorous scraping—typically with a coconut shell or broken plate—to lift fine fibers. These are washed and sun-dried, then trimmed and knotted by hand to create one long, seamless thread, which is then woven into cloth.
A portion of proceeds goes to our chosen organization. See more details here.
