This sweet angel ornament is made entirely from natural materials. Sinamay is a natural woven fiber made from the stripped fiber of the abaca tree. Abaca is a banana-like tree with a slender trunk and thin leaves. The fine strands of fibers are woven on a wooden loom. The resulting fabric is called sinamay. Sinamay fibers are also used for making cordage and ropes. Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children.
