Decorate your home and help keep waterways free!
Water hyacinth is a beautiful and fast growing plant that unfortunately clogs the waterways where it grows. The dried stalks can be used to weave vases, bowls and plant pots. This helps to naturally control its growth and create a better water flow, plus you can decorate your home with beautiful objects made from nature.
What is water hyacinth?
The water hyacinth originates from South America, but today can be found in tropical climates all over the world. It grows in water, has large leaves and lavender flowers. The water hyacinth that IKEA uses is harvested in Asia where the plant is seen as a fast-growing weed. After harvesting, the stalks which can be as long as a metre, are stripped of leaves and left to dry in the sun. When they are completely dry, the durable, easy-to-work natural material is used to make baskets, rugs and furniture.
