BANANATEX – A TEXTILE (R)EVOLUTION

QWSTION

1.10.2019, 7pm

Based on the material it has most recently developed, Bananatex®, the Swiss backpack label QWSTION demonstrates the potential of plant fibers for architecture and design.
The waterproof and durable material of sustainably grown banana fibers is biodegradable and represents a non-plastic alternative to the synthetic textiles that currently dominate the outdoor market. In an impressive installation at the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK’s Festival Headquarters, the designers behind  QWSTION show the production process and also highlight the characteristics of this eco-sensitive material developed over the past four years.
