Origin of the Vazhai Naaru Pattu

The significantly high cultivation of Banana in the southern states of India has lead to innovative ideas in using the by-products of the Banana plant - the fiber from Banana stalk being one of them. These eco-friendly fibers are now very popular amongst the saree wearing demography of the region, and their simple yet pretty color combinations make them a highly sought-after saree!
