WHAT IS BANANA DENIM?
Banana trees do not bear fruits once harvested, and they are cut down and discarded after harvesting.
It is said that the amount of it is 1 billion tons annually in the world and how to recycle banana trees is considered worldwide.
After we considered what we could do, we thought that making banana stems to fiber and it can be used for denim.
Banana fiber is superior to moisture absorption, quick-drying etc... and is said to be the fourth fiber after cotton, hemp, and wool.
Although materials (banana trees) are plentiful, the technology for making banana into " banana fiber" is not yet widespread enough
on industrial scale.
We are aiming to tell the goodness of banana fiber through our products and make it a familiar material.
ABSORPTION / QUICK-DRYING
Banana denim is light, breathable and great functional with high moisture absorption and quick-drying.
We aim for balance both contribution of environmental issues and comfort to wear, blended banana fiber with cotton to increase its elasticity,
and then silk softening treatment applied to create a soft and light texture.
BANANA COLOR SELVEDGE
Selvedge color is "Banana yellow"
We use yellow thread for sewing and unify the color.
PATCH IS ALSO MADE WITH ETHICAL MATERIAL
We produced "faux" leather patch with recycled denim scraps incurred during cutting process of jeans production which are usually discarded.
