Our sustainable banana fibre is produced from the waste foliage of the banana plant, grown in the flat Terai farming area of South Nepal. The plant has to be cut back after the fruit harvest so that it regrows for the next season, and trading this waste product provides an extra income to the farmers. We only use azo-free dyes for our banana fibre. While the woven scarves reveal their silky softness after their first wash, our wristwarmers arrive super pliable from being hand-knitted. Our woven banana yarn products have a rustic finish that adds character to each piece, connecting the wearer to the artisan who wove the fabric by hand; please be aware that these products may not suit those seeking a factory finish. 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 has been working with Deepchand's workshop in Bhaktapur, Nepal for over a decade. The workshop employs local women who work flexible hours near their homes enabling them to earn an income around their family commitments. They prepare the looms, spin the bobbins and hand weave the fabric for our bags and in a looser weave for our scarves. AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
