Our Piña Exhibit includes a display of the Philippine fabric made of piña and its origin. A gallery of photos shows the Filipino attire from Barong Tagalog for men to the evolution of costumes for women. The highlight of the exhibit is a private collection of the three gowns made of piña with intricate embroidery – circa 1936. These were gifts from the late Mrs. Aurora Quezon, wife of the late President Manuel L. Quezon, to her friend Mrs. Ann Schinazi.
