The Isuas Grove

Discovered on the edge of Syka, this grove was wild and overgrown when the first settlers of Syka landed and started talking stock of what was around them. Soon enough a botanist and gardener specializing in ancient textiles showed up and claimed the Isuas Vines were some long lost source to the ancient's miracle fabric. He was able to successfully harvest and weave the 'crop' from the grove and create a bolt of fabric that was absolutely superior to cotton. Tony was able to prove it was lighter, stronger, and held dyes far more vibrantly than modern day textiles.

Now, the settlers of Syka enjoy five harvests a year due to Syka's tropical location. The Leadership of Syka let Tony handle the restoration and maintenance of the grove and he takes a significant cut of the export profits from the raw material. The rest of the profits go back into community building. Slowly the vibrant Isuas fabric is catching on in popularity, especially since Tony has been able to identify and utilize many native dyes to get what he wants.

Tony came along to the Syka settlement late in the game. Some of the original settlers sent plant samples to back to Riverfall which got passed around from botanist and gardener and anyone who had interest. The Isuas sample reached Tony's hands and he traced it back to its origins. Tony was at the forefront of the Antiquities Society's research on ancient textiles. When he saw the bloom he immediately recognized the material and wanted to see the source. Once he saw the grove of Isuas Trees, he knew this was it.

He's been carefully restoring the grove since, cultivating it and working the fluff from the Isuas Blooms into a workable substance, much like cotton only lighter and stronger and most importantly more able to hold a vibrant dye.
