This table mat set is made from the Water Hyacinth reed fibre. This plant is considered a pest among aquatic plants as they infest still water bodies like lakes & ponds, chocking out other plant & animal life. To counter this problem, these craft items are made & thanks to this initiative, numerous villagers & artisans have a source of income from a cheap & easily available raw material. Using water hyacinth also minimises the threat to NorthEast’s cane and bamboo forests.
