    Banana Fibre Products

    The banana fibre is used for making threads, carry-bags, filaments and organic compost. This industry has very promising prospects in district owing to the abundant cultivation of banana in the district. Banana fiber is a natural fiber which has wide range of uses in handicraft product development such as mat, rope and twines, but only 10% of its pseudo stem is being used for making products and remaining is used as fertilizer. Mostly the fibre is extracted by manual process and the yield of fibre is very low. This kind of manual process needs skilled labor.


    Kushinagar (also known as Kusinagar, Kusinara, Kasia and Kasia Bazar) is a pilgrimage town. The district is named after Kush the son of Lord Rama as stated in the epic Ramayana.
