What's this purse made of?

Before you ask - no - I did not make this purse. I've had this purse for ages. I can't remember exactly who gave it to me, or where it's from (maybe Thailand, maybe Philippines), but I do know it's made from pineapple fiber!!! Would you have guessed? It is so delicate, and I just love the details, such as the mother-of-pearl button and the little woven loop at the side. Look at the amazing intricate embroidery! This was the purse I carried on my wedding day, and people would question me and comment on it, because it is so unique. At least I haven't seen anything like it here in Europe. I keep it stored in a soft cloth away from heat and humidity, in the hope that these all-natural fibers don't disintegrate!

  3. That sure looks pretty and looks very delicate purse. I can't tell from the picture that it's made from pineapple fiber. If I have to guess, I have to say it's made in the Philippines. It looks like something the ladies in the lowland areas of the Philippines would create.
