Pina Cloth is produced from the fibers of the Pineapple plant and is often used in the Philippines. Each strand of Pina fiber is hand scraped and knotted to form a long thread to be woven into cloth. Some times it's combined with silk.
This vintage clutch purse has a base purse shape covered in a plain fabric which has then been covered with the thin pina cloth and embroidered on the front, the back and the flap. It has a small handle of braided cloth and a snap closure on the front to hold the flap closed.
This piece is in good condition. It's a little browned from age, I'm not sure if this is normal or damage as I am not familiar with purses of Pina cloth. It has light wear from age but I see no rips or tears. The piece underneath the pina cloth sits a little out of shape at the bottom where it's been stored flat. It measures 7" wide and 5" tall.
