“Handicraft products for a sustainable lifestyle”.
That is the reason our products are mainly natural fibers. They are mainly 2 materials: water hyacinth & seagrass
Seagrass – “the grass that belongs to the marine”.
This great material is harvested sustainably in the coastal brackish marshes area, it is well-known by the seagrass due to its strength, softness and silky. To our artisans, this material is not only high-quality natural fiber to craft beautiful products but it is also the signature tree of their childhood
Water Hyacinth – “a weed plant from the river”.
They are the most popular materials for home handicraft products due to its durability and beautiful brown color. It is a soft material that has been used many for handweaving rugs to create a comfortable feature as well as the beauty of the products.
Palm Leaf – “a purely natural gift from the forest”.
All our individually handmade products with white patterns all crafted by palm leaf fiber. We selected this material then split, braid and hand-weave with traditional technique to ensure the fiber’s edges and surface are smooth and have natural white color
