Hi Everyone!

This time, I’m going to introduce you to our one of most used material, Yap! It’s Water Hyacinth!

According to Wikipedia, Water hyacinth is a free-floating perennial aquatic plant, With broad, thick, glossy, ovate leaves, water hyacinth may rise above the surface of the water as much as 1 meter (3 feet) in height. The leaves are 10–20 cm (4–8 inches) across on a stem which is floating by means of buoyant bulb-like nodules at its base above the water surface. They have long, spongy and bulbous stalks. The feathery, freely hanging roots are purple-black. An erect stalk supports a single spike of 8–15 conspicuously attractive flowers, mostly lavender to pink in colour with six petals. When not in bloom, water hyacinth may be mistaken for frog’s-bit. By using this material, we hope to be able to participate in saving our planet, other than that, we also trying our best to reduce plastic usage.
