Abaca is a burlap-styled textile made of sturdy banana tree fibers that are milled from Abaca plants (Musa Textilis). In the Philippines, Abaca is also referred to as “Manila Hemp”, a long-lasting fabric with many different uses. This traditional textile can be cut or dyed to accommodate any design project or décor piece. The natural blend of honey-tan colors helps create a tropical ambience in your living space.
Abaca cloth can be used for indoor or outdoor applications and is versatile enough to accommodate landscaping and design projects. Use Abaca Cloth as cabana matting, wall coverings, wainscoting, and landscaping design pieces. For an additional tropical touch, wrap rusted patio beams or plant pots in your backyard.
Abaca can be glued, stapled, nailed, sewn, or tied. If the size needs to be adjusted, simply cut the cloth with a sharp scissor or blade for accuracy. Fold, tie, twist, roll, or cut Abaca Cloth to fit your project’s needs.
Banana bark is a natural building material that is grown organically, free of chemicals and harmful pesticides. All of our Abaca Cloth rolls are considered eco-friendly and can be recycled once disposed. Banana bark is also a renewable resource that is found throughout the Philippines and grows at a rapid pace.
