MAYL Wear - Shopper in Pride Colors, Natural Sundried - Palmera Leaf, Lacquer Finish
Natural sundried Palmera leaf Shopper in Pride Colors is made from 100% palm leaves harvested in Sri Lanka under the sun and later hand-weaved by the local community that MAYL Wear support. It takes around 36 hours to colour the leaves, to dry them up and wave the bag.
Features lacquer finish on both sides (outside and inside) to prevent Palmera leaf to get moulded. The lacquer is giving the leaf a bit of water resistance. In the situation when the basket will get wet please put the bag in a dry place and wipe it with a dry cloth. You can use your hairdryer to make it dry faster. On a sunny day, you can leave it in sunrays!
Made in Sri Lanka.

"The present study indicated that methanol extract and acetone fraction shows a prominent antimicrobial activity against most referenced bacterial and fungal strains. Methanol extract possesses an interesting antioxidant activity as that of ascorbic acid. The antioxidant activity might be attributed to the presence of natural antioxidants such as phenolic compounds. Thus considering together, these out-comes show that the Borassus flabellifer Linn (Palmyra Tree) leaves could be considered as good sources of natural antioxidants and antimicrobials and may find several applications in agro-food and pharmaceutical industries." - Cairo University.

About the Palmera tree in Sri Lankan culture. The recently germinated seeds form fleshy sprouts below the surface which can be boiled and eaten as a fibrous, nutritious food. The germinated seed's hard shell is also cut open to take out the crunchy kernel which tastes like a water chestnut but sweeter. The ripe fibrous outer layer of the fruits is edible after boiling or roasting. When the fruit is tender, the kernel inside the hard shell is an edible jelly that is refreshing and rich in minerals. When the crown of the tree from which the leaves sprout is cut one can make a cake. In ancient times, dried palm leaves were used to write manuscripts.
