TADECO Home creates products using all-natural materials. Abaca fibers (Musa Textilis) also known as “Manila hemp” is intricately handwoven by the region’s ethnic indigenous people into fine woven fabric using traditional techniques passed on from one generation to the next. This distinctive fabric is then converted into contemporary home accents and lighting pieces by skilled artisans of Mindanao.
TADECO Home has evolved from a community development program of TADECO, (Tagum Agricultural Development Co.) a major banana exporter in Asia, into a globally acknowledged and sustainable handicraft manufacturing business in the Philippines. It also produces handmade papers and other decorative items from by products sourced from TADECO’s plantation.
