Organic Banana Fabric

banana fabric

A special machine is designed and developed for the
extraction of banana fibres in a mechanically
automated manner. It consisted mainly of two
horizontal beams whereby a carriage with an
attached and specially designed comb, could move
back and forth.
The fibre extraction using this technique could be
performed simply by placing a cleaned part of the
banana stem on the fixed platform of the machine,
and clamped at the ends by jaws. This eliminated
relative movement of the stem and avoided
premature breakage of the fibres. This is followed
by cleaning and drying of the fibres in a chamber at
20 degree C for three hours
