The rug is hand-woven by Vietnamese craftsmen using natural materials. Rugs and mats production in Vietnam has a long history and plays a big role in the local people’s lifestyle. As in many parts of Asia Vietnamese use the rugs for having a nap or to dine in a big company of family and friends. So they have a tradition of weaving these eco-friendly products for centuries.
This rug is made of water hyacinth, a beautiful plant that grows in the rivers of Vietnam. This plant grows very fast and often causes some problems for the local ecosystem and water transport when it grows too much. For this reason, locals regularly harvest it to keep the balance in the river’s ecosystem. Later they have learned how to use this material for creating beautiful products like rugs and baskets. It is quite a long and 100% handmade process, but it is a perfect material for sustainable consumption and zero waste ideas. On top of that water, hyacinth is a strong and durable material.
