Shelmed Cottage Treasures is a manufacturer and a global source for handcrafted, custom-made home products, accents and furnishings made from natural fiber.
Shelmed is primarily an Abaca company. Abaca is a natural fiber that has a long history of use in the Philippines. It is a strong fiber, one of the strongest there is in the world. And it is a beautiful, long fiber that absorbs colors well and has the strength and durability and tensile strength such that in the past it has been used for the manufacture of marine ropes. Its pulp has also been used for specialty papers and can be found in the paper used in printing the Philippine currency among others.
