TRADITIONAL AND NEW TEXTILE
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. Then they discarded from the trees. These excess tree stocks are moved and are then cut and processed into fibers. The fibers is then 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 fabric is completely sustainable and readily available in few parts of the world only.
