The GIGI stool is another high-end handmade fixture signed by MONNARITA. It’s a rattan stool with water hyacinth. Above all, it only uses natural and sustainable materials in its composition. Aren’t you convinced yet? Come with us and learn more about this eco-friendly and luxurious, yet simple piece of furniture.
What’s Water Hyacinth? Is It Eco-Friendly?
Water hyacinths can be found on wetlands, lakes, and rivers. Water hyacinth also reduces the levels of oxygen in the water it grows, affecting other aquatic species. It means that the extraction of water hyacinths from those areas is beneficial for the local biodiversity.
So, when you buy a GIGI rattan stool, you’re not only giving a touch of refinement to your interior design. You’re also supporting the removal of water hyacinths where they’re damaging to the environment. Also, the harvesting and processing of water hyacinth generates jobs and fuels a market of its own.
Beauty and Resilience Combined
All products signed by MONNARITA are handmade using only 100% sustainable materials, such as seagrass, banana leaves, water hyacinth, and natural rattan wood. Rattan wood stands out as an eco-friendly option for wooden products. It’s durable, resistant, and light, with natural colours that’ll look awesome pretty much anywhere in your decoration.
Rattan wood grows naturally in vast areas of Africa, Asia, and Australia. It looks like bamboo, but it’s much more flexible. It means it’s a more suitable material for furniture building and decoration. Don’t be mistaken by its flexibility, though, as rattan wood is actually harder than mahogany.
The maintenance of rattan and water hyacinth fixtures is pretty common sense. They shouldn’t be exposed to extreme weather conditions. Also, it’s sensitive to humidity, so avoid leaving it in the rain or snow. You can use normal cloth and mild detergent for cleaning it. So, this kind of furniture doesn’t require any special care.
