Hand-loomed pineapple fiber and silk scarf with an all-over yarn detail. Made in Kalibo, Aklan. Piña is known for its delicate, sheer nature, yet noted for its strength.
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.
