The purposes of this research were to examine the optimal amount of micro wax for coating banana rope, the product quality of micro waxed coat banana rope, and the consumer acceptance of micro waxed coat banana rope products by producing banana rope from fresh banana cloves. The percentage yield of banana rope and color evaluation was analyzed and the suitable micro waxing was studied at 5 levels of 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% in a 1 w/v concentration of paraffin solution. The coating was performed according to the specified ratio. The ropes were analyzed for quality by using scanning electron microscope, color, moisture content, and maximum tensile strength. In the final stage of the experiment, the consumer satisfaction of the crafting product was surveyed. The results showed that the yield of banana rope was 10%, the brightness (L*) was 63.41, (a*) was -0.18, and (b*) was -3.76. The optimum amount of micro wax for coating the banana rope was 25% with smooth and even surface. The brightness (L*) was 63.69, (a*) was 0.13, and (b*) was -3.55. The percentage of moisture was 5.35 and the maximum tensile force was 117.79 N. The average customer satisfaction revealed that consumers accepted the form and usefulness, and the overall satisfaction was 4.24, 4.46 and 4.32, respectively.
