Danish brand Ganni introduces synthetic fibers made from bananas

Offering an alternative to synthetic fibers typically used for athleisure, Danish brand Ganni has crafted a three-piece tracksuit set made from banana waste. While still not perfected, the set’s sustainable fabric could help eliminate some of the carbon emissions generated on banana farms.

Pyratex, a textile innovation company, helped Ganni turn banana waste into fabric as part of the latter’s Fabrics of the Future initiative. The project strives to make fashion more circular with low impact materials — of which there are nearly two dozen others in the works, according to Vogue Business — and hopes to find and implement the most effective solutions through a process of trial and error.
