Filipino firm exports first lot of abaca jeans to Japan

Manila, Philippines-based Asia Textile Mills Inc. has delivered its first lot of 2,500 jeans made from abaca fibre to a Japanese trading company.

Mr. Mathew Lazaro, President and CEO of Asia Textile told fibre2fashion, “We are making jeans from abaca fiber for a Japanese trading company. We have received an initial order of about 7,000 pieces.”

“We have just delivered the first lot of 2,500 pieces of abaca jeans. We are producing the remaining pieces and will be able to complete the order by end of March,” he adds.

Enlisting the properties of abaca jeans, he says, “The abaca jeans are much more durable. It can be gauged from the fact that abaca fibre is used in making ropes to anchor ships. Moreover, being porous in nature, abaca is much more comfortable.”

Mr. Lazaro prefers the term 'abaca jeans' to 'abaca denim'. He says, “We do not call it abaca denim, because denim is actually made of cotton. So, the right term would be 'abaca jeans'.

Informing about further marketing of abaca jeans, he says, “Besides Japan, we are talking to several buyers in Europe. It is because Europe and Japan are the two markets that are more ready to accept different new and innovative products. In the textile industry, when you talk about eco-textiles, it will always be the Europeans and Japanese who want to try new things.”
