Sisal is a type of agave; it yields a stiff fiber used in making various products. 

Sisal are organically grown in a small community in Central Thailand. Leaves are harvested in a sustainable way so the plant continue growing. The villagers then harvest these sisal and leftovers are being used as natural fertilizer for other locally grown crops.

Villagers then use a utilized bamboo, a sharpened bamboo which they used in scratching and thinning the sisal fabric, making it finer and thinner strips and then bring into the sun for drying.

After drying in the sun, the fiber will be meticulously braided into long plaits. Artisans bring these fibers into beautiful long braids to ensure more durability and greater quality.
