Description

Traditional weavers create our choice handmade trivets from banana stem fiber.

Banana plants bear fruit only once in its lifetime. Treated as agricultural waste, banana plants headed for landfills once the fruit was harvested. However, in its new avatar, the plant has been transformed into strong, durable, and renewable ropes, braided by hand, to create these exquisite trivets.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

The products are created from renewable resources, primarily from the fibrous part of banana stem. After harvesting bananas, the stem (trunk) is cut as close to the ground as possible. This was earlier treated as agricultural waste, but it is now being used to design beautiful, contemporary, handcrafted, biodegradable home goods and more. In addition to banana stem, river grass, jute, coconut leaf splinters and bamboo are some other agricultural products that are used.
