About 60% of synthetic fabric fibers are used in fashion products that threaten the
environment because they are difficult to decompose. The exigent condition of the accumulation
of waste that does not decompose requires innovation of environmentally friendly materials for
the fashion industry. Therefore, to support the use of environmentally friendly materials, this
study explores the fibers of the Sanseivera sp. The superiority of the in-laws' tongue fiber is that it
has long fibers, is easy to twist and weave, and is easy to color with natural dyes. The exploration
includes processing techniques, namely macramé, tapestry, and other additive exploration;
Exploration of the coloring used with natural dyes, namely Secang, Teger, Mango leaves,
Avocado, Purple sweet potato, and Mangosteen; and application of exploration results into
fashion accessories products. The result is an ideal tapestry technique for the exploration process
of fiber materials. Additional materials to strengthen the fiber braid are latex and starch pulp. The
exploration of coloring with natural dyes resulted in the Hard - Soft - Warm color range of the
Kobayashi color matrix. Exploration application by making bags made of canvas, woven
material as a result of technical exploration and coloring is affixed with the squeeze sewing
