This may be a new fibre to you but has been used in part of Japan and Nepal as early as the 13 century. The fibre comes from the shoots and trunk of the banana plant. The fibre is similar to silk and bamboo with long smooth staples that have a nice luster. It's incredibly strong while remaining soft, strong and is moisture absorbing.
