Die Veranstaltung

Bananatex is the world’s first technical fabric made purely from Banana plants which are organically cultivated in the Philippine highlands. At once super strong and durable, yet light and flexible, the natural beeswax coating gives it a smooth, water-resistant finish and a supple hand feel. Given our ultimate aim of offering a viable alternative to the synthetic fabrics that currently dominate the bag industry, we’ve developed Bananatex as an open source project, and want to encourage other brands to use it. In addition to the bag industry, Bananatex is also suitable as upholstery material in furniture design.
