Abaca fiber is obtained from Abaca Plant (part of banana family) which is considered as the strongest of all natural fibers. Traditionally, these fibers are used for fibercraft, cordage and pulp.
The stalk of the Abaca plant is the source of the fiber. The tuxies are extracted from the outermost portion of the leaf sheath then fibers are extracted using hand-stripping. The outer part of the stalk is brown or toast color. The second layer is tan or honey color and the innermost part of the stalk is cream color.
Due to its strength, we use abaca as a unique, highly durable,beautifully hand-crafted woven floor covering. What makes special about the Abaca carpet is our weaving structures designed to showcase the beauty of the fiber and skill of the hand work.
Abaca carpets are considered an Eco-friendly products.
