DELINEAR BANANA FIBER RUGS
"The banana plants that are used in the production of Delinear rugs are grown in the southern most region of Nepal near the border of India. The fiber comes from the banana tree trunk. The tree is harvested and cut into small sections so that it can undergo a softening process. The raw material is then processed by machine to extract the fibrous material. Once the raw fibers are separated, they are bleached to give a more uniform color. Upon completion of this process, they are dried and packed into bales for shipment to the Kathmandu valley, where they are dyed and spun into yarns for rug weaving."
Banana Carpet (banana, soy and other allergens)
"Hand Woven from Wool, Silk, Hemp, Banana, Cactus, Linen or any combination you desire!"
"Little did we know that the same plant that produces the low hanging fruit would be a source of strong fibers used in everything from clothing to, yes, rugs. The fibers, produced similarly to rayon, come from the stems and leaves of the plant and are combed and spun into a high quality fiber that creates the silky and sleek fabric that you will find in some of our hand-knotted rugs!"
