are being used for preparing handicrafts, ropes, etc. the major problems of non-adoption of fibre extraction
technology is low recovery of fibres leading to high transport cost. This plant has long been a good source for highquality
textiles in many parts of the world, especially in Japan and Nepal. In conclusion, this paper reviews the
possibilities of converting banana fibre into Garment with spinning and blending possibilities. The feasibility will
increase the utilization of waste in banana plant. The land of our country is suitable for Banana cultivation. The
