Water Hyacinth Pet Bed Basket (Blue Dots & Grey Fleece)
This pet basket is woven out of water hyacinth from Tonle Sap Lake, Siem Reap Cambodia. Water hyacinth, an invasive aquatic plant introduced from South America, has become a serious environmental menace on Tonle Sap Lake. The plant has a phenomenal growth rate and quickly forms dense floating mats paralyzing navigation on waterways, affecting local families who depend on fishing to make a living. With their income greatly affected, these families send children to the street to sell souvenirs to tourists, some even resort to begging to supplement family income. For these families, weaving products provides a safe and dignified alternative form of income. Local women use the dry stem of the water hyacinth plant and weave them into usable daily products such as mats, bags and hammocks. They sell them in the local market for income to support their families. Goli Design Water Hyacinth Pet Basket is one such product. A portion of the funds obtained to manufacture these baskets are invested in the community. By purchasing this pet basket, you are indirectly contributing to the well being of families within the community of Tonle Sap Lake.
