Water Hyacinth Natural Dye Pen Stand
Pani Meteka Craft,Assam

Rs. 200.00

This pen holder is made of water hyacinth reed fibre in a typical mat weave. This pen holder can be used as various room display and ideas, such as a planter for the plant also while adding a natural touch to your study table counter.

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.

Water Hyacinth (locally called “Pani Meteka” in Assamese) 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.

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