TADECO Home creates using only all-natural fibers. Their abaca* fiber is intricately handwoven by the region’s ethnic indigenous people into rolls of fine t’nalak fabric, using traditional techniques passed on from many generations. This distinctive fabric is then converted into contemporary home accents and lighting pieces by seasoned artisans of Mindanao.
TADECO Home has evolved from a community development program of Tagum Agricultural Development Co.(TADECO), a major banana exporter in Asia, into a globally acknowledged handicraft manufacturing business in the Philippines. It also produces handmade paper and other products made of banana fiber sourced exclusively from TADECO’s plantations.
