PHILIPPINES - A fruit company has partnered with a social enterprise to turn agricultural banana waste into fibres which are woven into textiles by prison inmates.

The Dole Sunshine Company (DSC) is working with Musa Fabric on the programme in the Philippines which aims to reduce waste and CO2 emissions, while benefiting disadvantaged communities and prisoners.

The resulting textiles are into fashion garments and accessories by local seamstresses and artists. A capsule collection made its public debut last month at New York Fashion Week.
