These are handmade individually by talented artisans in Indonesia with water hyacinth, which is an invasive aquatic plant that grows remarkably quickly above water, forming thick layers over the water. These layers block sunlight from other aquatic plants - which leads to their decomposition, less oxygen, affecting fish too.
Harvesting invasive water hyacinth to make craft is a beautiful way to support environmental sustainability and sustainable craft. A great conversation piece when you’re gathered around the table with your faves.
