Piña Linen

I went scouting for fabrics and went to the distributor of a material 100% tatak Ponoy. Unfortunately nobody is buying. It is called Piña Linen. It is actually a lovely material for blouses and sun dresses. Barong for daily wear could utilize this. Its light and soft but has a bit of cripiness in it. Its not indigenous but it is Filipino. 50% Natural as dictated by law.
Yes, there is actually a law. RA 9294 states na government offices kailangan they use materials na 100% made in the Philippines. 50% Natural.
Why is it we don't support our own? Perhaps it is because we lack promotion. So now I'm promoting Piña Linen. It is Pina and polyester. Very good material!
