Eichhornia, sea grass, or Jacinth is an invasive aquatic flowering plant which stems are used to make flooring and outdoor furniture.

Native to the sub-tropical regions, it is one of the fastest growing and expanding plants known to us. In southeast Asia, the hyacinth plants are grown for sophisticated fibre and end use. The 10-20 cm wide leaves can reach a metre long and yield a soft, durable, totally renewable, sustainable and eco-sound fibre. It is dried and woven or interlinked to make bags, floor mats and furniture.
