Abaca Flip Flops: Comfortable, Stylish & Eco-friendly Footwear

Abaca, otherwise identified across the globe as Manila hemp, is a Philippine-produced iconic material quintessentially used in many things, ranging from the country’s traditional clothing, the world-famous Manila paper, the strongest ropes, etc. But abaca is more than just these things as it now sees its uses significantly extended to yet another relevant aspect of daily living—as a comfy, elegant, and nature-friendly footwear.

Known for its outstanding mechanical strength, saltwater resistance, and extensive fibers, abaca is a greatly-valued material that is borne from the hard labor of farmers who cultivate and process it. Adding to this effort are also the experienced artisans who skillfully weave every fiber into something that is both functional and a work of art.

While the end product is undoubtedly a product of people’s hard work, one that merits patronage and support, it is also one developed with a lofty goal in mind—to mitigate the harms we inflict to this world by shifting conventional production of similar commodity into using sustainable raw materials as provided by Mother Nature.

Although abaca’s overall cultivation is still not yet at par with other local produce, the demand for this sturdy and eco-friendly material nonetheless makes it a cornerstone in the Philippine’s agriculture. Some are even going as far as to attribute it to gold, especially the many farmers who were industrious in their endeavor in meeting up the world’s global demand for abaca.

In promoting the great value that comes with wearing an abaca-based footwear, The Woven House is setting the stage by bringing the high-quality Filipino product to a wider market abroad.
