Water Hyacinth is a green water plant that grows in tropical waterways in Vietnam. Once it is dried, it becomes a durable and sustainable material for weaving. It is quite similar to rattan, but water hyacinth is much softer which makes it easier to create different shapes and accessories.
These plants tend to block the waterways, which leads to stagnant water. Water without movement is the perfect environment for mosquitos to multiply, which can lead to an easy spread of dangerous diseases in development countries. Which is why it benefits both the environment and the local habitants to use these plants for other means, like decorative pieces.
There are many advantages of using natural materials in your interior. In our blogpost we tell you more about it.
This pouf has a diameter of 60 cm. It can be used indoors or in covered outdoor areas.
