Nipa, made from the fibre of the agave or maguey plant and worn by women, is less common.
Alcohol is distilled from nipa, coco-nuts, burs (Corypha umbraculifera), cauong (Caryota onusta), pugahan (Caryota urens) and Indian corn.
At one place we find drifted fruits of Nipa, at another Hightea and Anona.
It has important fisheries, and manufactures salt, pottery, roofing (made of nipa leaves), and nipa wine.
In these marshes grows the nipa palm, from which a liquor is distilled - there are a number of small distilleries here.
