OUR MATERIALS

THE FIQUE

The natural fique of the tropics is a plant with a hard fiber. Its leaves are long and fleshy green. It measures between 2 and 7 meters high. The fiber preparation process is long and manual.

THE IRACA PALM

The iraca palm, also known as toquilla or palmiche, is a plant of Latin American origin that grows in temperate climates, cool shaded areas, along rivers and streams. To obtain the best quality of this natural fiber, the plant must have very strict care during its growth period that lasts approximately 3 years until it is ready to be processed.
