One of the world’s strongest natural fibers, Abaca Leaf has a myriad of uses. The plant, native to the Philippines, smoothed into whisper-thin sheets, Abaca Leaf gently lifts away excess oil from the skin because of its high absorbency capabilities.

Science

A relative of the banana tree, Abaca (musa textilis) is strong enough to be used in ropes and twine for large ships and water-resistant. The pulp of the Abaca Leaf is also used for many textiles, including papermaking and woven fabric.

History

Over a thousand years ago, artisans in used Abaca Leaf to protect gold and other precious metals as they hammered them into delicate, thin sheets for leafing. They realised that the Abaca Leaf left their hands feeling and looking fresh and clean. 

Provenance

To achieve the highest efficacy and most luxurious feel, Kaneya's beauty papers are made from only the innermost part of the Abaca Leaf, where the fibers are velvety-soft. 

Did You Know

Abaca fibre is valued for its exceptional strength, flexibility, buoyancy, and resistance to damage in salt water. These qualities make the fibre exceptionally suitable for marine cordage. Abaca is chiefly employed for ships’ ropes, hawsers, and cables and for fishing lines, hoisting and power-transmission ropes, well-drilling cables, and fishing nets. Some abaca is used in carpets, table mats, and paper. The plant’s inner fibres can be used without spinning to manufacture lightweight, strong fabrics, mainly used locally for garments, hats, and shoes.

Some currency is printed on notes that contain Abaca Leaf.
