TADECO Home creates using all-natural fibers. Abaca* fiber ( Musa textilis ) also known as "Manila Hemp" is intricately handwoven by the region’s ethnic indigenous people into fine t’nalak fabric, using traditional techniques passed on from one generation to the next. This distinctive fabric is then converted into contemporary home accents and lighting pieces by skilled artisans of Mindanao.
TADECO Home has evolved from a community development program of (TADECO) Tagum Agricultural Development Co., a major banana exporter in Asia, into a globally acknowledged and sustainable handicraft manufacturing business in the Philippines. It also produces handmade paper and other products made of banana fiber sourced exclusively from TADECO’s plantations.
