Our banana fiber products are derived directly from nature. Handmade in South India by local women to provide better income opportunities while also respecting the region's natural ecology. The fiber used to crochet this product is available locally and is made from the "dead" leaves of banana trees. These previously considered waste leaves are now given new life through contemporary and sustainable design innovation.
The banana leaves are hand-spliced to extract fiber strips, which are then twined to create different thickness ropes, which are then hand-crocheted and woven to create these eco-friendly coasters.
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.
