Aura Que - Pema Banana Yarn Scarf
The eco-friendly PEMA has a natural texture and tasselled ends; soft warm and cosy, it's a hit with men and women alike.
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. Read our blog post about how we use banana fibre here.
Handwoven in Deepchand's workshop in Bhaktapur, which employs local women who work flexible hours near their homes. They prepare the looms, spin the bobbins and weave the fabric for our bags and in a looser weave for our scarves.
AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
