Plant-based fibers for textile

Summary:

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. 


Description:

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.

Key Features:

  • Highly strong fiber and naturally beautiful. 
  • Mixes well with other fibers to form composites.
  • Lightweight and Biodegradable.
  • Rapidly Renewable. 
  • Water-resistant and flame-resistant.
