At Tribal Textiles, we create unique cards handmade from recycled banana paper and fabrics offcuts by our lovely ladies in the shop. The print is screen printed on organic banana paper before being embellished using scraps of traditional chitenge fabrics. Not two of them are similar and the ingenuity and imagination of our staff amazes us every day. They all come with a brown paper envelope.

We partenered up with One Planet Cafe Ltd. that produces the organic banana paper right next door to Tribal Textiles in Mfuwe. One Planet Cafe Ltd. are WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization) verified and produce paper from Zambian organic bananas grown here in South Luangwa. Local villagers use banana stems to create this unique and high quality paper. They are then processed in traditional Japanese Washi-factories to use as little energy, water and chemicals as possible.
