Our Lotus abaca bag is made of the first class category of abaca: milky white, very fine, and the individual fibers are silky smooth. It is cloth-friendly, not rough. It does not scratch the clothes because the texture is refined. The difference of our Class A abaca compared to the cheaper bags sold by bulk in street stores or other online stores is that mass produced for local consumption is made of “bakbak” or Class C abaca, the crude part of the Manila Hemp plant. Class C abaca is the outermost part of the tree thus it is coarse and when weaved into a bag or any finished product it can damage the clothing. When dyed, not all fibers can absorb the color because the fibers are coarse.
The Lotus bag yields when folded but will not be deformed. We do not need to add cloth lining to the bags since it is already soft and will not scratch anything.
Available colors: Black, Natural, Black and Natural Combination, Brown.
