So who knew you could make fabric out of Pineapples? I for one sure as hell didn't. After my last post about the origins of fabric I got talking to my friend from the Philippines he told me about this amazing stuff called Pina cloth. I am by no means an expert but here are a few pics for you to look at.
extracting the fiber form the pineapple
weaving the fabric
and the end result a beautiful traditional dress
and the most beautiful hand embroidered cloth. My friend has promised me he will bring me some back when he next goes home...... and if he does I will make sure i show you the end garment here.
