BUNTAL fibre is the long light coloured strand extracted manually from the leaf spine of the BURI palms, the most stately and tallest of the Philippine palms. BUNTAL’s natural flexibility, water resistance, and natural breathability make this fibre ideal for weaving hats and has placed our hats amongst the most luxurious hats in the world.
Our extraction is done in the coolest and most moist periods in the year to maintain freshness, smoothness and flexibility of the fibres.
A detailed process of assortment is necessary for delivering a STUDIO ANISS hat, clear and even with a pleasing minor variation in natural color. BUNTAL fibre are soaked, boiled and dried then flattened in preparation for the weaving process.
