Abstract
In the Cordage World recently there has been some correspondence on the possibilities of Bowstring Hemp or Sansevieria Fibre. Many people have been interested in this fibre in the past, and numerous concessions have been granted in East Africa for the harvesting of the wild plant, but it is doubtful if any of them have been commercially productive. It may be noted that there is practically no literature on the fibre characteristics, and it does not appear that any special claims have been made for it.
