Water hyacinth is a tropical aquatic plant that can be found and seen along rivers. They were actually raised from South America, but also from Southeast Asia. There it is considered a weed because it reproduces incredibly quickly and can cover entire bodies of water with a carpet. The right lack of light and contact kills all underwater creatures that belong to the plants needed. So that the plants can then be processed for further processing, the leaves are removed and the thick stems are placed in the sun for three to seven days. The result is a wealth of possible, leading raw materials for many woven goods.

This basket is made in Java, Indonesia.
