Tikau Foldi M & L Ecological banana fiber items are hand crafted by local artisan women in South India. The programme was initiated with the aim of providing better income, social status and empowerment to the local women. The material used for the bags and baskets is the locally available banana fiber made out of the “dead” leaves of the banana trees. These leaves, previously considered as waste, are now getting a new life in the form of contemporary and sustainable items.
