Face masks made from abaca fiber have become a popular trend in the Philippines. Abaca was once widely used due to its strong natural fibers. But, over the years, its popularity has dwindled. The current pandemic has somehow brought it back to the spotlight.
SUN RAIN Davao, an online shop by Escape Manila, is now selling different types of masks made from abaca fiber. It offers abaca masks made from Aklan and Misamis Oriental. It will also offer abaca masks from Catanduanes very soon.
