Banana Fiber
Banana Fiber products are one of the most environmentally friendly ones since they are 100% biodegradable and are produced from banana stem waste. Banana fibers in their natural state produce a highly absorbent material. The key factor is the high porosity and natural capillary action of the fiber, allowing it to absorb oil. Banana fiber is a super-sorbent, in that less fiber product is needed to remediate any spillage. Banana fibers can be used in sorbent socks, pillows and booms, or as loose fiber to clean up land-based spills.

A variety of products have been made from banana fibers in India and other banana growing countries. . The banana fibers are reported to be elegant and highly versatile. As they do not crumple easily, these fibers have been used in the manufacture of dress materials. The Japanese national dress – the Kimono is also made from this raw material. The fineness of texture depends on the quality of the fiber used. The material has a beautiful sheen and is used for making wedding gowns and barongs. Hand-extracted fibers have been used to produce handbags, wall hangings, table mats and other fancy craft.

Although about 500,000 hectares are under banana cultivation in India, only 10% of the banana stem waste is processed into fiber. If farmers decide to supply banana stems to these fiber processing units, they would not only clear waste at no cost, but also would benefit from their earnings. By producing and exporting banana fiber, Indigenous Innovations is endeavoring to provide an additional income for farmers in the region and improve their standard of living.
