In India, the invasive water hyacinth plant wreaks havoc in major water bodies. We source this locally available natural fibre from lakes to create aesthetically designed products manufactured through environmentally and socially sustainable manufacturing practices. We work with artisans and designers to create uniquely designed art and handiwork. Through the use of technology and manufacturing processes aimed at eliminating the environmental load, we guarantee quality and sustainability, and thereby foster craftsmanship. Our products are designed by NIFT students. FIBRE’s mission is to promote an appreciation for our native, offbeat, hand-made creations from the soul of rural India in its urban heart. Registration of the company is in progress.
Community Involvement : Artisan communities in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, North east India.
