Banana Leaf Coffin

£ 600 

Yarns of golden leaves from the banana plant are twisted and woven to form this coffin. They are available in two shapes, curved end and traditional. Both come with natural rope handles. They are fully fitted with natural linings, pillows and covers. Banana leaves come from the Musa genus of flowering Banana Plants. These plants grow as tall as trees and produces lush green leaves, which over time form its trunk. As newer leaves develop, the older leaves die back. During the monsoon season, the banana plant leaves rapidly multiply, leaving an abundance of older leaves for harvesting. The leaves would otherwise be discarded or composted. Instead, here, they are recycled, dried, tied together and spun into long yarns ready for weaving. Please note that the coffin may vary in colour from the photos.
