History and Origin of Piña
“Piña” fiber is extracted from the leaves of a pineapple plant. Its scientific name is ananas comosus. The fibers are ivory-white in color and naturally glossy. The cloth is translucent, soft and fine with high luster. Piña fiber is often blended with cotton, abaca, silk, or polyester to create wonderful light, breezy fabrics. Since
