Handmade water hyacinth paper base with recycled metal and copper wire design. Artisans use water hyacinth, a wetland weed, to produce this paper. After soaking and pounding the fiber to make a pulpy mass, artisans add it to water and stir until it is smooth. Each large sheet of paper is made individually by lifting the pulp in a thin layer on a framed screen, which is placed in the sun to dry.
