Sedges Farm with Traditional Crafts

Sedges Weed is synonym with Langkawi, as it grows everywhere wild. In the old days, when there were no plastic or nylon strings, locals use to dry this weed and make them into strings to be used for day to day. As kids, the older generations reminisce when they collected sedges and dry it to make it into strings to be sold to traders

Now, Ayer Hangat Village is bringing back this traditional craft by encouraging local schools and communities to use sedwes weed as an organic material for strings, weed mat and even furniture.

You can see the process of drying the weed, and if lucky the weaving of the weed by local village folks.
