Found only in the wild, in the forests of the Sierra Madre mountains in Aurora, sabutan is highly priced in the world of high fashion.
To ensure the supply of rare sabutan fiber, the Aklan State University (ASU) here is the first to attempt its culture in the laboratory. And it has succeeded.
The two-meter-long sabutan leaves are soft and shiny, turning green just before harvest. They are stripped into fibers that are very fine and smooth but strong in texture.

T-Sert Ku Series. Check-out this blog. The owner prints and sells Baler-inspired tshirts. The designs are pure Ak-kaw.
This is a free advertisement but i would not mind a free piece of black shirt with the design shown here. Looks like a good partner for my Pwera Katid shirt.
This blogspot is created to provide a venue for mga tiga aurora or may dugong aurora to express their creativity or promote everything that they like about aurora using t-sert as a medium. the idea is “concept mu idedesign at itatak ku” or “design mu itatak ku” for a minimal fee bearing in mind the peculiar characteristics of silk screen printing, the materials available and the capacity of the printer to transfer your design from the stencil or negative draft to the t-sert.
sa ngayon po ay mga salitang baler o aurora ang panimulang ginagawa namin o mga disenyo na may kaugnayan sa Aurora. makikita po ninyo na sa mga sumusunod na pagkakataon ang mga finished t-sert at ang mga iba pang design na pagpipilian. just make your choice of design and your favored color of paint and t-sert and place you order.
Upang masuportahan ang gastusin sa unang nabanggit na gawain tumatanggap din po kami ng commercial na pagpriprint ng t-sert gaya ng ginagamit sa opisina, sa mga grupo o asosasyon at organisasyon o sa promotion ng produkto o negosyo at personalized na pagtatatak, gaya ng pangalan.
