Each meter / yard of fabric is carefully created and hand-woven on traditional wooden looms. All the colors found in the Abaca and Abaca Optical references are hand-polished with shell to add shine to the fabric. From harvesting to drying the fiber and weaving it, several steps are essential to obtain the highest quality fabric. Color variations in the weaving are an inherent feature of abaca - they are due to the seasons and fiber harvesting locations. And it is precisely these variations that give the fabric its charm and make each length truly exceptional in its own way.
