  • What is hyacinth material?
  • Water hyacinths are named so because they are a type of weed that grows in lakes, rivers and other water bodies. The stalks of hyacinths are taken and processed to create the fibres needed for textiles. 

  • How do you make a water hyacinth basket?
  • The first process involves collecting water hyacinths and choosing the proper stems. Next, there is a soft tissue underlying the stem, removed and dried for a certain amount of time. This fibre is then treated and processed, and created into a rope. Artisans then used this rope to create their handicrafts and hyacinth bags, and baskets. If the fibre needs to be coarse, then treating the thread resembles making ropes of Jutes.
