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, pineapple fiber starts with the harvesting of pineapple leaves, followed by vigorous scraping to lift fine fibers which can be used for cloth. These fibers are 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.
