Origin sisal
Sisal fibres are made from the Agave plant. The plantations are mostly found on Yucatan, a peninsular on the Atlantic coast of Central America, owned by Mexico and Guatemala.

There are now also plantations in Brazil, Africa and Indonesia.
After being chopped, the leaves of the fibrous plants (with a length varying between 110 and 180 cm!) are ‘peeled’, exposing the fibres and making them suitable for further processing.
De fibres are dried, bleached and calendered and then spun into yarn and/or twined.
