Our banana fiber products literally come from nature. Handmade by local women in South India to provide better income opportunities, while also respecting the natural ecology of the region. The fiber used for crocheting this product is locally available and it's made out of the "dead" leaves of the banana trees. These leaves, previously considered as waste, are now getting a new life in the form of contemporary and sustainable design innovation.
The banana leaves are spliced by hand to extract fiber strips followed by twining to make different thickness ropes which are then hand crochet and woven to make these eco-friendly storage baskets or planters.
TerraKlay is bringing a wide range of functional designs in stoneware pottery created by craftsmen and craftswomen from south India's village community.
These products were born from the idea to create a platform where the villagers could live and work in their village and learn a new skill instead needing to migrate to bigger cities. This led to the creation of a range of "eco-friendly products" wheel-thrown by village craftsmen. All stoneware cups are fair trade and show the beauty of their handmade artistry.
