The Product

Product name: Handwoven Banana Fibre Table Runner
Package contents: 1 Handwoven Banana Fibre Table Runner
Dimensions (cms): 65cms x 18cms x 8.9cms
Material: Banana fibre

The skin of the banana stem is spun into yarn which is then dyed by hand and woven into these sturdy and colourful dining table essentials. The fibre, which is similar to jute and hemp, is extracted from stems that are the by-product of banana cultivation and usually burnt as ‘agricultural waste’ in the orchards surroundings Bangalore.
The fibre is becoming popular in handicraft manufacture because of its strength, biodegradability and environmental compatibility.
Each runner takes 3-4 days to complete and begins by spinning the banana fibre into yarn on the charkha. This runner is made using eco-friendly dyes.
