Abaca is a rather unknown but unexpectedly talented banana plant (Musa textilis). It’s native to the Philippines and harvested for its extremely durable fibers, which are extracted from the leaf stems. We value abaca, also called Manila hemp, for being a sophisticated, fast-growing and highly sustainable material.
Please note that each of our products was handmade by artisans who need days to weeks to finish it. Any irregularities should not be considered as flaws, but enhance its unique character.
