    Bananas are actually a large grass. So as you peel off a piece of grass to make a whistle, so you peel off a piece of the banana to dry and use that fiber to create things.  It can be cut with scissors or a knife, stripped and wrapped, and even shredded and corded.   The fiber is used to create a a great variety of  hand crafted items: baskets, figurines. jewelry and of course Piggy Banks.
