Banana plant fiber & cotton blend Handwoven on traditional handloom. Crafted by rural weavers from Southern India. Traditional weavers create these handwoven runners from a blend of banana plant stem and cotton. Banana plants bear fruit only once in their lifetime and head for landfills once the fruit is harvested. Banana plant agricultural waste is re-purposed and transformed into strong, durable, and renewable ropes, to create these exquisite runners.
