Slippers from water hyacinth

Owner project : Ms.Korrakot Trakulsaksawasd

What is it : slippers

Scenario : My scenario comes from the observation that hotels and resorts often use single-use slippers, which are made from materials that are naturally biodegradable. Although these slippers can be cleaned, it doesn't tackle the problem of communicable diseases like fungal diseases of the foot. I got the idea of making slippers out of water hyacinth as they feel and look soft are cool to wear & absorb moisture from feet and are suitable for the weather in Thailand. It's appearance can be matched with resorts that have a nature themed decoration, they can reduce waste and in addition make good use of water hyacinth, an aggressive weed available in abundance in all the rivers of Thailand.
