Meseta Weave with Fique Fiber
Fique Fiber: Sourced directly from the Andean regions of Colombia, fique fiber is extracted and processed to transform the hard fique plant leaves into threads, softer than sisal and more durable than jute. It is commonly mistaken for one of the mentioned fibers but its properties are quite different.
In comparison to jute, fique is a little bit rougher to touch but is far more resistant and strong, ideal to withstand the traffic of everyday life in indoor spaces. Regarding its similarity to sisal, fique is smoother but still as resistant to contact, traction, weight, tension and impact. Due to its flexibility, it’s easy to combine with other materials, which enhance the properties of the surface in terms of touch, appearance and function.
