It has been beautifully woven in seagrass using techniques Viet Nam is well known for - giving it strength and handmade appeal. The earthly tone creates a natural vibe in whichever home you use it in.
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. Maintenance = You can clean your products with a wet cloth to remove dust and dirt. The important thing is to dry it well afterwards - if water hyacinth remains wet, mold can occur. We recommend keeping your water hyacinth pieces indoors or covered outdoors because the sun can affect the color and structure of it.
Cotton is a natural fiber used to make soft and breathable textiles. It can be recycled and recovered, however it is sensitive to light and heat. Our cotton undergoes special treatments to come out extremely soft and durable. Maintenance = Cotton needs to be washed in cold water and preferably washed by hand; this helps to keep the color. You can use a washing machine but make sure the temperature isn’t above 30°C. Using hot water can cause the cotton to shrink. It is best to air dry, on a flat surface and out of the sun if possible.
