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. Banana yarn is suitable for vegans and is an ideal alternative for those who suffer wool allergies. Small imperfections in the weave due to the rustic handweaving process add character to each piece.

AURA QUE have been working with Deepchand's workshop in Bhaktapur, Nepal for over a decade. The workshop employs local women who work flexible hours near their homes enabling them to earn an income around their family commitments. They prepare the looms, spin the bobbins and hand 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!
