A new ecologically conscious fabric

That is completely sustainable and readily available in few parts of the world only. The history of banana fabric involves creating a textile which has unique properties and good value for money especially in countries within Southeast Asia.

Abaca Banana fabric is created using raw materials which are generally discarded after a banana harvest. These raw materials usually come in the form of fibers which are taken from the stems of each banana and discarded from the trees. These excess tree stocks are moved and are then cut and processed into fibers which can be weaved together into a solid fabric base. These fibers throughout history have been used to create silky abaca banana fabric for tablecloths, saris, kimonos and more. There are also a number of area rugs and other products which are created specifically using banana fabric due to its resiliency.

Abaca Banana fabric is fairly simple to process by hand to create a silk like fabric. Although when you think of banana leaves you may not think of softness or resiliency, these fabrics can be just as resilient and comfortable as a fine silk. As a result there are many designers and product manufacturers that seek out banana fabric due to its cost and sustainability.

As well as a high tensile strength abaca banana fabric repels grease and water and remains extremely flexible as well. When refined using traditional weaving technics from Cambodia banana fabric can become just as soft as organza silk. With the water resistance properties banana fabric is great for raincoats and outerwear as well. An added bonus that banana fiber can also bring these fire resistances. Not many other fabrics within the textile industry for fire resistance can be manufactured as inexpensively as the completely renewable abaca banana fabric.
