Cut banana leaves into strips, plait them and fasten the braid onto a narrow strip of carton – and there you have a very special book-mark. Plaiting the fibrous banana leaves is a traditional Gomeran craft. Recently Petra, a local crafts artist from Vallehermoso taught our guests at El Cabrito how to master this. It seems simple but it needs patience and a bit of skill – but it is fun. With this action our guests manage to support the Gomeran Society for Sustainability: It will use these handmade book-marks at Canary fairs for sustainability.
