Philippines: Philippine Textile Research Institute (PTRI) of the Department of Science and Technology has developed new technologies for promoting the use of natural fibers for clothing and fashion accessories for which Senator Loren Legarda congratulated them. Using natural fibers empowers indigenous people’s communities to put their traditional arts and crafts like the ikat, the t’nalak, abel iloko, the piña, and others in the mainstream textile industry.

The Institute said that they are very grateful for all the support that Senator Legarda has been giving PTRI especially in promoting local textile and in particular the passage of the law on mandating the use of Philippine tropical fibers as government office uniforms. Now, on their 50th year anniversary they are pushing for the promotion of natural fibers and natural dyes from non-traditional sources that are abundant in the countryside.
