The modest, sustainable materials of bamboo & abaca are at the heart of our third Holiday Collection.
Seemingly fragile, but actually amazingly strong, abaca — woven as sinamay or gumon — is used to expose the structural bamboo frame. In a reference to embroidery, at the five crossing-points of the star, abaca twine lashes the bamboo together, forming crosses, alluding to the destiny of the holy child.
To store, fold the tails onto the face of the star. If the sinamay gets crumpled, use a warm iron with a clean T-shirt on top to flatten it.
