Hyacinth Paper Photo Album with Grass Stem Décor
Handmade in Bangladesh, India
There are few things in life anymore that you get three benefits in one. Like our hyacinth paper photo album. Store your favorite pictures and memories, be good to the environment and provide necessary work for women who might not have work otherwise.
The water hyacinth used to make this album is a bad actor in many parts of the world, growing out of control and taking over land and canals. Women in Bangladesh, mostly widowed, abandoned or divorced, beat down the fiber into a pulp and then collect the pulp to make thin, even sheets of paper. Then the paper is transformed into our photo album.
What a wonderful thing to know as you’re making and sharing your own memories.
