We would like to share with you one particular development we did in our Texber – Lab division. We created and wove a fabric made of banana tree fibre.

The “Cabildo de Canárias”, the local government, following the circular economy philosophy is developing a fabric to be used in technical applications using the left-overs from banana plantations. To develop this project, they rely on Leitat, a local technical textile centre.
When Leitat wanted to develop the actual fabric, they came to us and asked us to create a fabric that had to fulfil their weight specifications and it had to be made with the yarn they had already developed. From this starting point, we designed the sample and wove it.

We are very happy to be a part of this project and wish them a big success.

Finally, we would like to thank Leitat for its permission to share with you the details from this particular order.
