To create banana bark cards, the first step for the Haitian artisans is to collect the banana leaves – and that is not as easy as you might think. None of the cards are painted or dyed and so the variations of color that you see are because the artisan has selected different colored leaves.
It takes quite a while to walk around and find these different types of banana trees that provide slightly different fruits and also slightly different banana leaves. By careful selection, the artisan is able to find a full range of colors and without this quirk of nature none of these beautiful designs would really work.
We hope you’ll enjoy our banana bark cards.
