Sea-grass Waste Bundles
Sea-grass mats
Product and PCS Design
Technology Development

This collection was developed for Viet Trang, a sea-grass SME in Vietnam.  The project was carried out under the umbrella of two institutions - SPIN and UNIDO.  

The project looked at developing new products for an SME which manufactured typical sea-grass mats for domestic and export markets.  Through the project, waste generated by the mainstream sea-grass mat processing was used for a new product line.  The waste was bundled together and each of these bundles were connected to form a surface. The resulting surface had the benefits of the sea-grass texture and in addition a springiness that the original mat lacked.

Another strategy applied was to use the traditional technique of stencilling on sea grass mats to create contemporary motifs that would align the mats with alternate lifestyle markets.  Yoga mats were developed using bold, black stencils of asanas, using resized loom woven sea-grass mats.
