hyacinth design - our story
WHY CHOOSE WATER HYACINTH?
It’s durability and simplicity along with its natural look and organic texture attracts the interests of
interior designers and architects the world over.
WHAT IS WATER HYACINTH?
Water Hyacinth (Eichhornia Crassipes) is a tropical floating plant that grows in the waterways of
South East Asia. Also referred to as the ‘golden plant’ in Thailand it grows in dense clumps and can
double in volume in around 2 weeks – forming a dense mat across water surfaces.
HOW IS WATER HYACINTH MADE INTO FURNITURE?
Yothaka pride themselves in creating very high quality furniture which means they handle the Water
Hyacinth in a specific way. The furniture is made in a 5 stage production process which undoubtedly
produces the best results.
Stage 1 - It is harvested by the villagers around our factory and dried naturally in the sun for
several days – this is critical to the strength of the finished product.
Stage 2 - The stems from 3 plants are then plaited to form a braid. Each stem is around 80
centimetres long, which means when the braids are woven into furniture there are no joins.
Stage 3 - The braids are then either immersed for 24 hours into dye for the chocolate/charcoal
colourways or left unstained for the natural colourway. The immersion of the braids into the dye
allows the dye to penetrate the water hyacinth giving it a beautiful depth of permanent colour.
Stage 4 - The dyed braids are then allowed to dry naturally in the Thai sun
Stage 5 – The braids are then woven onto the hardwood or cane frames that form the basis of our
furniture. All the hardwoods used in our frames come from sustainable sources managed by Yothaka.
OUR FACTORY
Yothaka has been established since 1989 and now employs over 200 workers and over 1000 local
villagers working to collect the water hyacinth from the waterways. Our factory supports these
workers by providing them and their families with opticians, doctors and valuable schooling.
Our factory consumes over 8000 kilometres of water hyacinth in its braided form each year – this is
almost enough to stretch from our factory in Thailand to our warehouse here in the UK!
HYACINTH DESIGN AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Not only is our furniture environmentally friendly, our packaging recycled and our brochures and
literature printed on FSC approved paper but since July 2009 the electricity used at our Hertfordshire
warehouse is generated by an on-site wind turbine.

yan lipao
Yan Lipao basketry is a traditional Thai Handcraft, which dates back as far as the early Rattanakosin
dynasty (150 years ago). Thanks to the interest and support of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand,
it’s popularity continues to the present day.
Yothaka International were inspired by this prestigious history to create a brand new limited edition
furniture line from Yan Lipao.
Each piece is made by hand over a 45 to 60 day period by only the most skilled craftsmen.
Yan Lipao is a fern vine that grows abundantly only in the forests of southern Thailand. This vine, which
has an average diameter of 2-3mm, is naturally available in shades from dark to light brown which are
woven together to create the final effect.
The vine once collected is peeled, the outer part stripped from the pith and hung to dry naturally in the
shade. The dried Lipao is then polished and smoothed out before the weaving process begins.

Maintenance/Cleaning

water hyacinth
Water Hyacinth is durable and it can be vacuumed or simply brushed to remove dust and dirt.
For major spills please follow the below instructions
1. Remove all upholstery
2. Remove any surface spillage with a sponge or paper towel
3. Wash the area if required using a mild soap, lukewarm water and a soft cloth
4. A nylon brush (such as a dry washing up brush) can be used to remove dried food or mud etc
5. Paint thinner can be used to remove tougher stains – but do test on an inconspicuous area first
6. Place the furniture outside or in a well ventilated room to dry thoroughly
Please note it is important that the furniture is dried thoroughly and must not remain damp for any length of time as this will result in the subsequent deterioration of the product.
Water Hyacinth is a natural untreated handmade product and will react to different levels of heat and humidity. Direct sunlight is often harmful to all types of furniture over very long
periods of time. Avoid placing any furniture near a heat or damp source as the likelihood of damaging it is obviously increased. Central heating and seasonal changes can change the
atmosphere where the furniture is situated so due consideration to the situation of your furniture is the first step in caring for it, thus ensuring its longevity. This will allow you to enjoy
your Water Hyacinth furniture for many years to come.
SPECIAL NOTES:
Water Hyacinth is a natural hand dyed material. Colour and size variations are part of it’s beauty. Chocolate and Charcoal coloured Water Hyacinth is a stained natural product
and colours may vary.
We accept no responsibility for any fading, colour and size variation.
The standard 100% cotton cushion covers can be removed for cleaning on a 30 degree wash or alternatively dry cleaned.
We accept no responsibility for any shrinkage.
