Sabai grass grows wild in several regions across India. Given that it is lightweight, easy to work with, and can be dyed easily, it is used extensively to make products for the home such as baskets, storage containers and placemats, which are commonly found in homes in India.
Sabai grass is typically harvested twice a year. Once harvested, the grass is dried before it can be used to make products. The dried grass is then twisted into ropes, and these ropes are braided by hand. This is followed by the dyeing process which involves soaking the braids in water that’s boiled in earthen pots, together with azo-free dyes. At the end, the dyed braids are woven into the desired design to make the final product. Sabai grass products are environment-friendly and biodegradable.
- Dust regularly using a dry cloth. If needed, use a damp cloth to clean food stains.
- Keep away from direct sunlight to avoid fading of the colour.
