Bananas underwear

Australian underwear company AussieBum has been monkeying around and the result is a range of men’s underwear made with bananas.

AussieBum’s Lloyd Jones said on Friday that the new eco-friendly banana range of undies incorporated 27 percent banana fibre, 64 percent cotton and nine percent lycra.

He said the banana fibre used in the underwear was made from a bark weave from the banana plant, which made the underwear not only lightweight but also very absorbent.

“Naturally you can’t really add any more banana fibre than that because it might be a bit squishy,” said Jones, adding that wearers did not have to worry about real monkeys because the underwear did not smell like a banana.
