    Plant fibres have decisive advantages compared with synthetic fibres. One great advantage of plant fibres is their optimized strength to weight ratio. Others are their better workability as a result of optimum fibre length and cell wall thickness, their high anisotropic qualities and their good ion exchange capacity. The natural products are readily biodegradable and renewable.
