Our sustainable banana fibre is produced from the waste foliage of the banana plant, grown in the Terai flat farming area of South Nepal. The plant has to be cut back after the fruit harvest so that it regrows for the next season, so trading this waste product provides an extra income to the farmers. We only use azo-free dyes for our banana fibre. Banana yarn is suitable for vegans and is an ideal alternative for those who suffer wool allergies. Read our blog post about how we use banana fibre here.
AURA QUE have been working with the artisans who handmake our banana yarn products since 2009. The World Fair Trade Organisation certified collective is based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Learn more about the World Fair Trade Organisation here.
Care instructions: Machine washable on a cool wash. Do not tumble dry. Keep dark colours separate.
