The abaca fiber is not spun or wrung, but is jointed end to end.
They make excellent stuffs of cotton and of abaca, dyeing them various colours with extracts of the woods grown in the country.
Weavers of abaca left their looms and hung out of the windows to talk with their neighbours about the great event.

This species was met with only at Quoin Hill, where it was common around the abaca and wild bananas.
I never saw the species there and took my one specimen in the abaca, where the bird was eating spiders, nectar, and pollen.
This bird was fairly common at Quoin Hill in the abaca and wild bananas and, at Kalabakan, in primary forest.

It is usually found growing in well drained soil under the shade of banana and abaca plants and areca palms.
