Banana fibre is derived from the pseudostem of the banana plant. It is extremely resource-efficient due to the fact that it is made from waste material that would otherwise be burnt or left to rot. The extraction and processing methods for banana fibre can vary to a great extend, with some being more eco-friendly than others. Depending on those methods, the quality of banana fibre can range from a rough bast fibre to a shiny and soft fibre that is very similar to silk.
