The Philippine Tropical Fabrics Month, being celebrated in January led the Philippine Textile Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PTRI), aims to raise awareness about the use of natural fibres like pineapple, banana, abaca and the Philippines silk for textile and allied products. The 54th founding anniversary of the institute will be celebrated on January 30.

This year’s theme is ‘Fashioning Philippine Textiles in the Now Normal and in the Year of the Creative Economy’.

Malacanang Proclamation 313 declared January every year as the Philippine Tropical Fabrics (PTF) month to promote Filipino textile products that are indigenous to the Philippines.

DOST-PTRI will be having a two-day event on January 27-28 of the first-ever virtual conduct of the annual Textiles Empowering Lives Anew (TELA) Stakeholders' Conference. TELA has been the brand of DOST-PTRI’s initiatives to boost the global competitive of Philippine textile and allied industries. The Philippine textiles e-portal will also be launched.
