By using a renewable material like banana fibre in this product, we avoid using fossil or finite materials.
The strong banana fibre is a by-product of banana growing. The plant only bears fruit once, and instead of letting the trunk go to waste, the outer fibres can be dried and then woven and braided into things like baskets, table mats and furniture. All our banana fibre comes from pesticide-free plantations, and by using fibres from different banana species we get a natural colour variation – and a more vibrant expression.
