Basket Weave Water Hyacinth Pillow

Denise George

What is water hyacinth? Water hyacinth is a free-floating water reed that originated in South America but has since been introduced worldwide. It is one of the fastest growing plants known and can completely cover a body of water if not controlled. It has begun to clog up some of the waterways in Thailand, so a very clever Thai designer figured out how to use the fibrous stalks of this plant to create beautiful home accessories and pillows. She has turned a weed into contemporary home products, using traditional Thai craftsmanship and providing additional income to the villagers. A real winner all around -- sustainable, fair trade and gorgeous.

Natural color water hyacinth fibers woven with black jute into a wonderfully unique decorative pillow. Black cotton canvas backing. Pillow insert filled with 95/5 down. Natural color as shown.
