A new look with natural fibres
India is the world’s largest producer of bananas, which are a plentiful and renewable natural resource.
To create the geometric patterns of the hand-woven pieces in the KRYDDGLAD collection, artisans wove black yarn together with banana bark fibers.

Braiding banana bark is a traditional way to make functional items for the home in India. For KRYDDGLAD the technique was used to make stackable storage baskets, which are great for organizing small items.

Renewable natural fibers from banana plants
All parts of a banana plant can be used. The fruit and the core of the stem are edible. The large waxy banana leaves are traditionally used as serving plates. The ends of the banana stems are used as threads for stringing together flowers that women in southern India often wear in their hair. And fiber from the bark makes a durable raw material when woven together.
KRYDDGLAD limited collectionKRYDDGLAD limited collection
It takes about 10 months for a banana plant to reach maturity. After harvesting the fruit the banana plant is chopped down and the stems are split and left to dry. Once dried the stems are stripped into the individual fibers. The banana fibers are then woven together into a durable material used for may different products.

Traditional embroidery
There are many different embroidery techniques in India and each region has its own style. IKEA designers and product developers work together with local artisans to develop designs based on traditional patterns.
For the KRYDDGLAD collection a running stitch technique was used to create circular and lined patterns over printed fabric.

«We have always lived in the villages. The elders would never let us go to the city. They never let their women out of the house. It was forbidden. In earlier times women were discouraged from going out. Since they’re educated now, I encourage my children to go out, to learn, to travel. Whatever you do, progress in life.»

Badili Bai
Artisan, Rangsutra

Badili Bai came to India from Pakistan in the 1970s. She has been working with embroidery for nearly 25 years and has managed to save money for family expenses like education and healthcare. She has two sons.

«Some of the main issues that face women in rural India are access to an education, good healthcare, very basic needs like clean drinking water and of course livelihoods. By giving regular work to [women] … gives them an opportunity to get out of their homes. Having income has given them more of a say in what the family decides.»
