Abaca believes every place has a story to tell and every culture has something to offer, the line of carefully designed and selected handmade items evokes the spirit of community and preservation of traditional craft. Each handbag is handwoven using abaca, the strongest of all natural fibers - a highly durable, flexible material that also is resistant to salt water damage. 

Each purchase of an Abaca handbag contributes to a sustainable livelihood for weavers in Southern Luzon, Philippines. A portion of proceeds will go to Right Start Foundation, a non-profit, non-government organization for underprivileged Filipino children.
