Silk “tails” are woven into abacá-fabric by skilled Aklanon hands. Abacá, a species of the banana plant native to the Philippines, lends a wonderful, warm sheen. Fully-lined with a sheer fabric.
Stalks of the Abacá plant are sliced, scraped, and sun-dried, after which the finest fibers are woven into cloth. Previously used to make rope for ships, it is known to be water resistant and the strongest of all natural fibers. Handloom weaving is the oldest industry in Aklan, Philippines. Although it is a big part of local culture, it is a time-consuming practice, and interested youth have become few and far between.
