As a farmer, Mr. Quang is very passionate about research. After many years of inefficient rice production, Mr. Quang turned to mat weaving. But then, the material for making mats (slices) is scarce every day, so Mr. Quang himself has to find new sources of replacement materials.
Mr. Quang presented how to harvest fresh banana sheath
The banana seed is an almost wild plant and this means that the material will be abundant and cheap. Once upon a time, only bananas were planted to eat corn (flowers), leaves were wrapped in cakes. Later, people use fruits to soak wine and the whole banana stem (bananas) is removed.
Banana peels fresh after drying from "4 to 6 sun", they become raw materials to create mats to make mats and many other fine art items.
The handicraft products made from banana waste products are very diverse and plentiful.
In 2010, this old farmer had the bold idea of using dried bananas (stems) to make mat material. His screenings are abundant in many sizes, selling prices in the country from 120,000 to 130,000 VND / unit; exported to Cambodia from VND 180,000 - VND 190,000 / unit. "Export to European countries, the price is much higher, but due to insufficient supply, less capital, I have not dared to receive many orders" - Mr. Quang said.
