“Our Abaca collection is characterized by the natural lustrous, long staple fiber which comes in dramatic range of fiber color. These qualities make abaca uncommonly beautiful as woven floor covering.

Thick ropes of abaca are plaited by hand to give our rug its beautiful pattern. Strong and smooth, the abaca offers exceptional durability and resilience underfoot. Abaca, indigenous to the Philippines and obtained from the abaca, or Manila hemp plant (part of the banana family) is considered the strongest of natural fibers. Traditionally used for fibercraft and cordage due to its strength and heightened resistance to salt water decomposition, it is now more widely used in pulp and specialty paper manufacturers such as currency notes.
