As the name implies, seagrass is indeed a grass, and seawater does play a part in the production. Seagrass is grown in paddy fields, at a certain point during the growing season, the fields are flooded with seawater. It is highly renewable and comes from environments where sustainability practices are employed. Once harvested, the seagrass is dried and spun into strong yarns ready for weaving. A misconception that seagrass wicker is taken from the sea isn’t true and potentially damages the livelihoods of seagrass farmers.
