Banana-Fiber Paper

Green Banana Paper

Green Banana Paper produces sustainable vegan products from agricultural banana waste in Kosrae (Micronesia). All products are made of banana fiber paper – a naturally beautiful and strong plant-based material. The manufactory obtains the fibers from sustainably grown banana trees from local farms directly on Kosrae. In the papermaking process, the fibers fuse together at the microscopic level to form a “leather-like” paper material that is lightweight, tear-resistant and biodegradable. However, it is important to note that banana paper is less pliable than leather, which may limit its role as a true leather substitute for shoes, handbags and other accessories.
