Where to buy a barong tagalog shirt for an 8-year old's First Communion in SF Bay area?

My 8-year old nephew is getting his First Communion and they want him to wear the traditional Filipino shirt, a barong tagalog, during the ceremony. They live in the midwest so we've been tasked with finding a source out here in California. Hoping to find a source somewhere between SF and Daly City. Preferably made of the pineapple fiber (pina) or banana fiber (jusi). Thanks for any help!

Yelp has a bunch of tailors and stores in SF and Daly City listed. I'd probably try My Wedding Expressions in Daly City.

Maybe the Filipino-American Council of San Francisco could help you? There's a name, phone number and email address. Good luck!

Have you considered internet commerce? They even seem to have piƱa and jusi.
