Item details

This listing is for 1 oz of raw, Uncombed, Hand-dyed Banana Fiber as shown in the first four photos. The last 2 photos show examples of the combed fiber. It is one of three Eco Fibers being developed by the textile industry - Pineapple, Banana, and Coconut. It is hoped the these Textile Fibers will reduce the amount of cotton (a very unsustainable fiber to produce) currently used in the making of textiles. Banana fibers are extracted from the leaves of the banana tree. Previously the leaves were discarded as waste. Since banana trees are already being grown for the bananas, harvesting the leaf fibers for additional uses instead of discarding them makes a lot of sense. Banana fiber is a very versatile Plant Fiber with many uses - Fiber Arts being one of them. Have fun incorporating this beautiful fiber into your own arts and crafts.

Raw Banana Fiber isn't widely available in the US so I started purchasing the fiber from a supplier in India and began using this fiber to make some of my Bottle Brush Trees. It occurred to me that there were likely other crafters out there who would enjoy working with this fiber and incorporating it into their beautiful fiber creations. This unique and gorgeous fiber can be used for Spinning, Weaving, Paper Making, Macrame, Doll Hair and any thing else you may think of.
