Handwoven from 50% abaca fibres and 50% organic cotton.
Abaca is a fibre that comes from the trunk of a non-fruit bearing banana tree. The trunk of the tree is soaked in nearby rivers for softening, making it more manageable to separate the fibres. The abaca is then knotted to become yarn, and hand-woven by women in a cooperative on Philippines.
It is lightweight, supple, soft and lustrous fabric with a structure very similar to taffeta.
It is perfect for bridalwear, couture-finishings, embroidery and furniture.
