It all started with bark from the banana tree. Bac Bac Braid is made from Bac Bac matting. The braiding is typically ½” wide and marbled in color; variations of dark brown, tan, and natural beige accents. Due to it's flat form, the Bac Bac Braid is ideal when it comes to trimming corners and tidying up rough edges or seams. Although very functional, it is best used indoors.
It is easiest to apply contact cement to the back of the matting and then stick it to the wall. You can also staple it directly to the surface you are covering (for example a column). The Bac Bac Mat and/or the Bac Bac Braid can be treated with a clear varnish for added strength.
