100% plantain fiber backpack, woven entirely by hand by an independent artisan from the Huila region in Colombia.
Plantain fibers have the advantage of coming from an agricultural residue. Fibers have been extracted by mechanical means from the tree pseudostems, as a strategy to valorize plantain crops residues.
It is very soft, very lightweight, and has become a popular summer must-have.
