Abaca fibre "T'nalak" from the Philippines

An ikat weaving made from "abaca" fibre also know as "Manila hemp". This is a species of banana native to the Philippines and the fibre is made from the plant stems (like hemp or linen)

The weaving is called a T'nalak and is used for ritual and ceremonial purposes. Making one is a long and labour intensive process and all the dyes used are natural plant dyes. Originally bought in Lake Sebu, Mindanao.

Size:71 cms x  1.65 mwith a rolled hem for display
