Abaca is a type of banana plant from the Philippines whose stalks produce fibers used in decorative items due to their flexibility strength and natural beauty. The Leverett Drive 8-light chandelier has a simplistic design that allows this material to be the focus of attention. Each strand of Abaca rope is tightly hand wrapped to form a textural facade of warm neutral-toned colors. Finished in polished nickel with gray abaca. Professional installation by an electrician is recommended.
