National Museum of Anthropology, Padre Burgos Avenue, Ermita, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
Learn more about the uniqueness of pineapple fiber - the Philippines is the only place in the world that produces fibers from the leaves of an introduced plant and woven into fine cloth, used for our formal attire. The recent combination of pineapple fiber with cocoon silk to produce piña-seda fabrics is a testament to our ability to incorporate newer materials and our pragmatism and aspiration to do better.
At the exhibition in the Reception Hall on the 4th floor of the National Museum of Anthropology, you will be able to see the traveling piña loom among other objects, which is about a third smaller than the actual loom (which you may view in the Hibla ng Lahing Filipino Gallery on the same floor) and fastened only with pegs.
Besides the lectures, National Museum of the Philippines is also offering free embroidery workshops.
