SEAGRASS... is a perennial grass grown and harvested annually from paddy fields that are flooded with sea water as the crop grows. Slightly waxy by nature, it is naturally STAIN RESISTANT and easy to care for. Suitable for indoor, climate controlled areas. Not suitable for areas that are subject to high moisture conditions. Seagrass is woven from hand twisted undyed blades of grass. There will always be sprouts, color and thickness variations throughout. These are inherent in woven seagrass the same way knots are inherent in wood.
MAIZE... is the equivalent to corn husks. The husks are harvested and braided into a yarn which is then used to weave. These yarns will inherently be uneven and vary in color as they are not dyed.
