Banana Fabric

Our Banana Textiles are organic and woven by hand following traditional Khmer techniques.

All the fibers are natural and so rare, thus quantities are unsettled and limited.

We dyed any colours requested with a quality non heavy metal dyed (dystar).

The fibers from the banana stems throughout history have been used to create banana textile for tablecloths, saris, kimonos and more. Today, many designers and product manufacturers seek out banana textile due to its resiliency, softness and sustainability. Banana fabrics are especially great for raincoats and outerwear.

Samatoa’s approach

Samatoa uses the best socially responsible manufacturing techniques to create innovative ecofabrics that support women’s empowerment in Cambodia.

During 13 years, we developed a fantastic team of expert spinners, weavers, seamstresses, and designers. Our innovative fabrics are 100% ecological, hand spun, and woven, following traditional Cambodian methods. This gives them a unique texture and properties available nowhere else on the planet, which are now in demand around the world.


The basics of the Samatoa model rely on the belief that sustainable economic development is intrinsically linked to social equity and environmental protection. No source of polluting energy, no chemical or toxic substitute, and no heavy metal is used in the manufacturing process of our fabrics with the greatest respect for nature.
