Textured black and white Banana – £13.99/m
Hand-woven using thick banana yarns that have been dyed before weaving (commonly referred to as yarn-dyed) this thick, warm fabric has been created using two different coloured yarns for the warp and weft, giving it a wonderful depth and mottled texture. It is matte, thick and sturdy, with an amazing drape.
Thick Basket Weave Banana – £23.99/m
In its beautiful, natural, cream colour, this is a completely unique fabric. Thick banana yarns are hand woven in a loose basket weave construction. The twisted yarn gives it a subtle sheen, and it virtually glows! This thick, matte fabric is one of the most exciting fabrics we have seen in a while.
Why Banana Fabric?
Banana is a fantastic, natural textile for both fashion and interiors. Warm, thick, matte and durable, it provides the perfect texture and quality to create tailored jackets, skirts and trousers, as well as being suitable for soft furnishings such as cushions and throws. Due to its hand-woven nature, banana fabric is also a unique, and beautiful fabric that upholds Offset Warehouse’s ethical values.
Making a difference
Both Banana Fabrics are hand-woven by a registered Nepalese NGO. Amongst other benefits, this means that the workers who create these wonderful textiles are working in safe conditions and being paid fairly. The textiles are also almost 100% carbon neutral – virtually unheard of in this day and age. Offset Warehouse is dedicated to providing socially and environmentally responsible textiles, and these banana fabrics are no different.
