Tote bag with patch pattern, handmade from banana fibre and crocheted by the women in Kabini.
Coarse to touch and earthy to feel, the fibrous texture of banana plant fibre is symbolic of resilience and adaptability.
Banana fibre, usually discarded to rot as agricultural waste, has a natural sheen to its texture. It is durable and has a high moisture absorption quality.
From the process of making the rope to doing the crochet and finishing the product, every step is made by hand and with no electricity or machinery. A time consuming process, that requires skill and craftsmanship - the entire process takes around 5-7 days.
