Abacá

is a species of banana plant native to the Philipines and is grown as a commercial crop in the Philippines, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. Abaca fibre is valued for its exceptional strength, flexibility, buoyancy, and resistance to damage in salt water. These qualities make the fibre exceptionally suitable for marine cordage. Abaca is chiefly employed for ropes for ships,  and for fishing lines and nets.  Although the outer leaves of the plant are used in carpets, table mats, and paper.
