Explore ways to develop this raw material
By Carlo P. Mallo |

During the recent run of Manila FAME International, it was noticeable that a lot of products were made out of natural fiber, mostly from plants endemic to the Philippines. Either completely made out of fiber or accentuated by it, the growing number of fiber products shows that it is a growing trend.

Betty More, executive director of Katakus, Inc. a non-governmental organization, said that most fibers they use are by products of other processes. Others are sourced from the waste products of farms, and fruit stands.

“For durian fiber, we extract the fiber from the shell of the durian which is usually thrown away after the fruit is eaten. Banana fiber is extracted from the trunk of the banana,” More said.

The potential of natural fiber has only grown bigger through the years as awareness on the social impact of synthetic fibers has greatly improved.

Entrepreneur.com.ph listed down ten products that you can make out of the natural fiber that are readily available.
