Handmade Banana Fibre Notepad
A rustic notepad with hand loomed banana fibre and fabric cover
Hand-loomed banana fibre is skilfully used along with Ikkat fabric to make this elegant and functional notepad diary.
The women artisans from Hiriyur block of Chitradurga district, 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. The yarn thus made is used to make banana fibre products.
