Plant-based fibers for textile
Green Banana Paper is sustainably manufacturing world-class vegan products from agricultural banana waste in Kosrae, Micronesia. All products feature banana fibre paper: a naturally beautiful and strong plant-based material. Products include banana paper wallets, custom business cards, greeting cards, artist paper and more.
The fibers are extracted from sustainably sourced banana trees grown at local farms in Micronesia. In the paper making process the fibers fuse together on a microscopic level to create a 'leather-like' paper material that is lightweight, tear-resistant, and biodegradable. It is important to note, however, that banana paper is less supple than leather which may limit its role as a true leather replacement for shoes, handbags and other accessories.
