Handwoven Raw Silk 

Joe Bananas is renowned for his Handwoven Raw Silk Jackets. Inspired by the Australian landscape and its surrounds, all Joe Bananas Raw Silk weaves are exclusive and unique.

The silk is procured, spun, dyed and woven by hand in-house at Joe Bananas. It takes between 200-300 days of handweaving on the loom to create a single weave, producing a limited yield of 25-35 yards, which in turn allows for a limited run of six to seven jackets to be tailored from each individual weave.

Exclusive, Luxurious.  Unique - entirely Joe Bananas.
