Get away from the heatwave with this fine eco-friendly hat made from water hyacinth, a must-have for festivals, holidays and sun-soaked weekends. This is a 100% eco-friendly.

Water Hyacinth Hat is made of water hyacinth (locally called “Pani Meteka” in Assamese)  which is abundant in the state of Assam and needs to be tapped optimally for production of utility as well as designer items like mats, hats, vanity bags, shoes and lampshades.

Mature water hyacinths which are 15-30 inches long are cut by these artisans and their stems split open and dried for 5-6 days. The  dried  material  will  turn  brown  and  will make  a  cracking  sound  when  crumpled. These stems  are dyed as  per  choice  of  the product and are given proper  shape  as  per  the  final product  to  make. Then frames are made  and   weaving is done as per requirement  of  the  targeted  product. Finally the  products are varnished  for  a  glossy  look. These products are given anti-fungal treatment.

These  products are very light in weight, cost effective and durable among others.
