Reclaim your wall with a little help from nature
A simple way to make your empty wall warm and inviting in just a few seconds is to decorate it with natural fibres, like handmade mirrors or wall decorations. These all have different shapes and expressions, yet have several things in common. They’re made of fast-growing materials, which makes them a sustainable choice. They’re also decorative, versatile and create jobs for skilled craftspeople. A wonderful way to make those white walls more alive, right?
What is sedge (or seagrass)?
Sedge (or seagrass) grows naturally in South-East Asian coastal areas. For our products, we mainly use cultivated sedge from field areas that have previously been flooded by the sea, making them unsuitable for rice cultivation. But sedge grows well in salty soils and even helps cleanse them. After harvest, the plant is left to dry in the sun making it a hardwearing fibre ideal for weaving or braiding products with beautiful colour variations, like baskets and mats.
