Product Description

Drawing inspiration from a seminal book on pina by Lourdes R. Montinola in the 1990s, Randy M. Madrid’s Pina Futures bridges pina’s rich cultural traditions with contemporary innovations that sustain its existence as the “Queen of Philippine Fabrics.” The book offers new perspectives of looking at the sartorial development of an island textile as an artisanal fabric, a trade commodity, a garment of honor and identity, and a treasure of the world. It acknowledges the place of pina – the textile and the craft – in Philippine culture through its long history and its trajectory into the future.
