The fabric has a natural gloss similar to silk, and is a better quality than traditional Jinsin. This gloss protects the fibers and as a result and does not require any treatment with toxic chemicals, making it a green material. It is used in the fashion world and high end home décor. Made in the Philippines. If ordering more than one yard we will ship in a continuous length. Applying glue before cutting will help to prevent fraying. Run a bead of glue along the cutting line and along the selvedge. When partially dry, it helps to flatten the glue bead and make the cutting easier. Once dry, trim off the selvedge and cut the abaca along the glue lines trying to cut so that part of the glue is on each side of the cutting line. This is a fine blend of Pineapple fiber and Silk.
