The Banana twine is first soaked in water so that the fiber becomes soft and supple as it is flexible to make bags. The bag making process is very simple and followed crochet weaving technique. Banana weaving technique is unique when compared to other weaving techniques. The weaver uses their fingers to thread the bags and other products. Base and body of the Banana bag is weaved first and then weaving progress to increase the side walls of the bag. The handle of the bag is weaved separately and then attached to the bag. The excess Banana yarn after weaving is cut using scissors. Few other products like tea coaters and dining table mats are handmade by braiding the slices of Banana fibre and then coiled to take the required shape.
