Dry leaves can be used for thatching, a traditional construction method consisting of building roofs with dry vegetal materials, and overhead decorative applications. Caneplex Design water hyacinth leaves are presented in 100 cm high woven rolls to suit both constructive and ornamental applications.
Caneplex Design natural materials are a product of selective cultivation and specific harvest time, which have been physically dried, heat-treated and disinfected before and after insertion, and their colour is completely natural, resulting in hue variation. For each one of them, the quality control is carried out by local partners while being subjected to phytopathological inspection before and during import.
It is advisable to use a wood preservative (fungicide) and water-soluble (preferably) wood varnish, colourless or in close tint, initially and at regular intervals of 2-3 years. That way the material is protected from fungus, the colour does not fade straight away, it is infused and preserved beyond the anticipated time.
