The Story Behind It

The Versatility of Abaca

Closely related to the banana plant, but oddly enough considered an herb, the abaca plant is an indigenous material of the Philippines often used to create everything from baskets and clothing to tea bags and banknotes. Abaca plants usually reach between 10 and 15 feet in height, and grow with great speed, making their fiber a terrific renewable resource - one of the reasons why we're big fans!

Abaca is perfectly suited to the construction of our artisanal handmade Madras Baskets, serving trays, drink coasters and more. To create these beautiful eco-conscious baskets, madras (the bark of the abaca plant) is harvested in long, flexible strips that range in color from light brown to nearly black. When woven into baskets, the color variation shows up with an almost marbled look, which gives each item its own unique look.

Huge Sturdy Trunk This trunk surpassed my expectations! It is large, sturdy and looks great! My friend actually sat on it thinking it was wood and it supported her! Great purchase and deal for the price!! September 12, 2013
Holds a lot and looks great Bought this to store toys in our living room. It is much bigger than I thought it would be, which is great! It goes well with the decor in my house and it seems pretty sturdy. March 14, 2012

Great Product Love this product. I bought my first one and loved it so much that I bought two more. I use it to store toys, books and blankets in my living room and kids' bedrooms. Looks nice and you can store a lot in it! Seems to be well made, too! December 19, 2010
Great Trunk, would buy again I use it in living for coffee table. Great to store grandchild's toys. April 2, 2010
Great Storage Trunk This storage trunk looks great in our living room. We use it as a toy box for our children and can close it when guests come over to conceal the rubble of toys. The only thing is that the edges are sharp so be careful with small children. October 27, 2009
