Not just wool, cotton and linen: among natural fibres, there are also others that little is known about despite being widely used.

Extremely resistant 100% natural fabric, Abaca, better known as Manila, Cebu and Davao hemp, has nothing to do with hemp itself because it is related to the banana fruit. Originally from the Philippines, this medium-large sized shrub – it can grow up to 5-6 meters in height – is recognized by a large and massive false trunk which is not wooden but produced by the stratification of numerous overlapping leaves and for its flowers and fruits with limited nutritional value.

The fiber is obtained by processing the sheaths that wrap the floral stem and the underground, perennial stem.
