Banana Natural Fiber Jewelry

The average American ate just over 27 pounds of bananas in 2019. We’re just bananas about bananas! 

But the thing about this fruit is that its cultivation produces a lot of waste. Banana trees produce fruit only once in their lifetimes. After that bunch is harvested, the tree is cut down, and usually left as waste in the field. This is the fate of most banana trees.

But not all of them! Through a time-honored process that’s recently been regaining popularity, the non-edible parts of the banana tree are crafted into fibers that can be used for various applications, from packaging material to clothing to elegant jewelry.

How Does it Work?

When the banana tree’s fruit is harvested, the trunk is cut down. Artisans take the discarded trunk and peel apart its layers. These parts are cleaned and washed to separate the fibers and make them suitable for spinning into threads. The resulting material can be used in any application that would otherwise have required silk or cotton.

Why We Love Banana Fiber

Banana fiber is an excellent way to utilize the whole banana plant. Banana thread is vegan, unlike silk, and far more sustainable to cultivate than cotton. It’s lightweight and has a gorgeous natural shine. These are just a few of the reasons this fiber is so rapidly growing in popularity.
