Our banana fiber products literally come from nature. Handmade by local women in South India to provide better income opportunities, while also respecting the region's natural ecology. 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 waste, are now getting a new life in 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 this eco-friendly rug.
We are taking pre-orders at this time. We find that this approach allows you to decide what goes into production. This way we can get to know your taste and eliminate overproduction and a wasteful, unsustainable business model. Delivery of your item(s) will start from late August. We will keep you posted via email on the progress. For more info read our FAQ page.
