Banana or Plantation Rope
There are various uses for rope or twine about the house or farm but one can hardly find one
when needed. In Nigeria, rope is made from banana or plantation trees. The twine produced
can be used for tying bundles together or tying plants to stakes. For example, Nigerians used
this cord to secure your plants against stakes and to attack yarns to vertical poles for storage.
The central stem of the banana tree is surrounded by leaf sheaths or sections. Once the fruit
has been harvested from the tree the stem can be made into rope.
