Abstract
The production of Phormium Fibre in Kenya has lately drawn attention to this Industry. The present world-wide shortage of cordage fibres makes East African Phormium readily saleable at remunerative prices at this time. The fibre is softer and can be used for purposes where true hard fibres are less adaptable. It suffers, however, from certain disadvantages, so that careful assessment of its value and production cost would be advisable before encouraging large scale production in Africa.
