This company produces furniture with synthetic and natural rattan as well as from water hyacinth. This production is typical of this river delta region. Workers here are experts in the art of weaving and have the additional motivation of knowing that the use of water hyacinth in making furniture reduces the encroachment that this plant is exerting on the region’s rivers.
As a matter of fact, water hyacinth is very harmful to it’s environment as it covers all the surface of lakes and rivers making fishing and travelling on water ways impossible. The quality of water is affected as the sun rays cannot get through this thick layer of floating vegetation.
The use of water hyacinth not only provides work for the populations of the Mekong Delta, it also reduces the impact of this noxious plant on the bio-diversity of the region.
Main export markets: Northern Europe, Australia, México, United States and Canada.
