Fibers serve a largely supporting function in the plant. They tend to be flexible and have great tensile strength and, thus, allow bending without breaking of plant axes. Fibers in primary tissue regions, especially those obtained from some monocots (Fig. 21c), are utilized commercially in the production of twine, rope, doormats, burlap, etc. Somewhat similar fibers occur in the secondary phloem, and fibers that are shorter, narrower and ofter thinner-walled are very common in the secondary xylem.
