Filipinos asked to guard against fake pina cloth
Oct '11
Angelo B. Palmones, representative of AGHAM, an organization of pro-people science and technology advocates in Philippines, has asked the Filipino citizens to be guard against buying fake pina cloth as fake clothes are being sold in the market.

Pina cloth is a soft sheer fabric made from the fibres of pineapple leaves.

According to the Philippine News agency, Mr. Palmones bought a barong Tagalog made from pina jusi and sent it for test and analysis to the Philippine Textile Research Institute (PTRI), Department of Science and Technology. The researchers at the PTRI confirmed that the product was a fake pina jusi.

Barong Tagalog is an embroidered garment which is very lightweight and worn untucked, over an undershirt. The jusi technology developed by PTRI enables production of world class fibre.

Mr. Palmones said such practices of selling fake cloth misleads buyers and will jeopardize domestic products as being of low quality.

The AGHAM representative said he would discuss the matter with the officials at the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to protect the Filipino pina jusi fabrics.
