Description

PETA approved vegan

Pure Banana paper-leather is approved by PETA

Unlike most fruit trees, banana trees produce fruit just once and must be chopped down after harvest because they will self-reproduce from the base.  Normally, the trees are left in the jungle as unwanted waste.  Now on Kosrae, over 75 local farmers earn extra income from selling their trees to us.  That’s why we call it “waste to wealth”.

Banana fiber is found within the large trunk of the plant. It gives strength to the banana tree so it can hold up those heavy bananas! Banana fibers are strong and beautiful, and have been used for thousands of years throughout the islands in rope making and weaving.

The fibers are naturally water resistant. If it does get wet, just allow it to dry and you’re good to go! Additionally, banana fiber is highly fire- and tear-resistant. With normal daily use and periodically applying wax or any other water repellant, this products will last you a long time! Did we mention it’s recyclable?
