Note: Species. The fiber has been used since pre-Columbian times; the Aztecs are known to have made clothing from it. From the late 1930s sisal has been cultivated commercially in Central and South America as well as in Africa. It is a strong, stiff fiber with a pale cream color. Sisal is typically dyed bright colors with direct or acid dyes. Sisal is used for cordage, ropes, sacks, brushes, upholstery padding, rugs, matting, handbags, hats, and in papermaking.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 物種名,其纖維的使用始於前哥倫布時期;已知阿茲特克人用此製作衣物。自西元1930年代後期,商業用的瓊麻被廣植於中美洲、南美洲和非洲。瓊麻的纖維強韌,呈淺米色,通常被以直接染料或酸性染料染成鮮豔的顏色。瓊麻可用於製作繩、索、布袋、刷子、襯墊、小地毯、鋪墊、手提包、帽子以及造紙。 
Dutch ..... De vezels van deze plantensoort gebruikte men al in de precolumbiaanse tijd. De Azteken maakten er kledingstukken van. Vanaf het eind van de jaren dertig van de twintigste eeuw verbouwt men de plant commercieel in Zuid- en Midden-Amerika en tevens in Afrika. De vezels zijn sterk en stijf en licht crèmekleurig. Gewoonlijk verft men sisal met directe of zure kleurstoffen met heldere kleuren. Met de vezels maakt men touw, stoffen vulmateriaal, zakken, borstels, tapijten, matten, handtassen, hoeden en papier.
