Our sustainable banana fibre is produced from the waste foliage of the banana plant, grown in the Terai flat farming area of South Nepal. The plant has to be cut back after the fruit harvest so that it regrows for the next season, so trading this waste product provides an extra income to the farmers. We only use azo-free dyes for our banana fibre. Banana yarn is suitable for vegans and is an ideal alternative for those who suffer wool allergies.
Handmade by artisans within a World Fair Trade Organisation certified collective in Kathmandu. Our hand-knitted products are made by women who knit the pieces at home, working around their family commitments and providing them with an income to help their families. Urmila coordinates the team of women, training them to produce each style and distributing the yarn and materials.
AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
