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.
