Sustainable banana fibre is produced from the waste foliage of the banana plant, grown in the Terai flat farming area of South Nepal. The plant has to be cut back after the fruit harvest so that it regrows for the next season, so trading this waste product provides an extra income to the farmers. Only azo-free dyes are used. Banana yarn is suitable for vegans and is an ideal alternative for those who suffer wool allergies.

The World Fair Trade Organisation certified collective is based in Kathmandu, Nepal.
