Banana Bark to Fabric

In collaboration with Gramya- Friends of Nature. The artisans from Chitradurga, Karnataka collect the banana bark of the well-matured banana trees. Then the bark is split into strips and it is treated with water to make it smooth and supple. Then the pith is separated from the fiber. This fiber is hooked to the spinning wheel to make the yarn. Nine women can work on the wheel at a time. The yarn thus made is used to make banana fiber products.Some are made in the handloom. While some are hand woven using the banana fiber yarn.
