A sustainable new life for waste
Ecological banana fibre items are handcrafted by local artisan women in South India. The programme was initiated with the aim of providing better income, social status and empowerment to the local women.
The material used for the bags, baskets and rugs is the locally available banana fibre made out of the dead leaves of banana trees. These leaves, previously considered as waste, are now getting a new life in the form of useful, contemporary and sustainable items.
