Recycled Silk and Banana Yarn Skirt: Ivory
This skirt is a mix of reclaimed silk yarn with pops of metallic threading and banana fiber yarn. The latter is made from the sustainable fibers that are scraped from the bark of a banana tree and hand-spun by women’s co-ops in India. Don’t be scared by the word “fiber,” because there is nothing scratchy about this yarn at all. After harvesting the fibers from the trunk of the banana tree, they are put through a softening process that makes the fiber very similar to silk. Then when it’s spun, it is as soft as silk - soft and strong, full of texture, color, and bio-degradable so it’s completely vegan and eco-friendly!
