Once the stems have completely dried it is soaked in water or chemical for some days, this process is called retting. Retting loosens up the fiber from the main stalk to outer stalk. Then the fibers are extracted the short coarse fiber is used to make paper, ropes, etc. and longer fibers are used to makes yarns for weaving.

Clay Products


Pottery


1.Seasoning


Before using any clay ware or earthenware product, it is needed to be well seasoned, but why you need to season it? We need to season the earthenware products before using it because of the material i.e, clay is porous. Seasoning is a must as it prevents breakage, leakage, damage from heat, as well as smell or stains. You can season the earthenware by soaking the vessel in boiled rice water, letting it cool down to room temperature and letting it air-dry overnight. 


2. Cleaning


Once you have used the earthenware products, you can either clean it with warm water and gentle scrubber it is recommended to use coconut coir while washing the earthenware vessels as those hard scrubbers can strip away the glazing. If you want to do a deep cleaning of the vessels, you can soak the vessel or bottle in the sink overnight with warm water and few tablespoons of baking soda. Then wash it using coconut scrub or soft nonmetallic scrub in the morning. Never use any kind detergents to clean the earthenware products as the porous material will soak up the detergent leading to the soapy or unpleasant aftertaste and will leach to the water or food stored in the bottle or vessels.


3. Storing


Once you are done with these vessels not using it store it a place where you can reach it because you don't want to break it while taking it out. Always make sure that the bottle or the vessel is completely dried up before storage as you don't want those gross looking molds growing on your treasured beauties. Better if you can store your vessels and bottles in a well-lit, dry & ventilated place to avoid any mold growth. Also, don't change the temperature of the vessel or bottle too quickly as it may crack or breakage.


Glass Products


Recycled Glass


1. Cleaning


It is can be pretty difficult to clean glassware products as they demand high maintenance care you cant put them in the dishwasher as it may break.you can always hand wash the glassware immediately after using to avoid any kind staining. Always use a mild soap and soft sponge to clean the glassware to avoid scratches on the surface and dry it with a microfiber towel.

Tips for Home


vastu tips for home


Tip #1


Vastu Shastra is an old guide for a positive home, right from the entrance of a house to the bedroom to the kitchen to the bathroom.

The door of the house which is also considered as the archway of victory & progress in life should be constructed in a way that when you step out you should face the north-east direction.one should avoid painting the entrance door black and also a shoe rack or dustbin right outside the door.

Tip #2


Ideally, Vastu says the bedroom in a southwest direction of the house yields good health & prosperity. We should avoid a bedroom in the north-east or south-east part of the home as it may cause serious health issues or if the couples sleep in these rooms it may cause many quarrels among them. The bed should be kept in the southwest corner of your bedroom with your head facing west. One should avoid keeping mirrors or television in front of the bed as your reflection must not be seen in a mirror when in bed as it may cause domestic fights.


Tip #3


Brahmasthan or the center of your house is also considered the center of your nest. In this region, many powerful energies flow and are considered the most powerful and holiest area of your home.

Brahmasthan or the center of the house should be spotless and clutter-free. It should be built in the circumference of 1 to 1.5 meters and this circumference should not have any objects to block the flow of energy. It should not also have any obstruction or any build-up area. 

Tip #4


The living room of any Vastu amenable home should have the living room facing to the north of the home or east or the northeastern side. Vastu rules state that any ideal living room should be a north-facing living room. All the bulky furniture should be placed in the west or southern-west area of the living room. Any electronics and electronic appliances should be situated in the southeast part of the hall. If one wants to keep a mirror in the living space, it should be ensured it is placed on the northern section of the wall.


Tip #5 


Nature invariably brings a happy, pleasant element in your home, but flowers or plants which are dead, dried or withered can bring up an opposite impact on the people living in the home. This can also hinder the energy flow in the house. Carnations should not be kept inside the home as it brings bad luck to our home. These plants can be grown outside the home, either in the garden or on the terrace. Plants or cactus which has thorns should never be kept inside the house as it may cause interpersonal issues.

Tips for Office

Tip #1


Seating arrangement in Vastu Shastra plays a key role as the entrepreneur should facing east or north but the best is east as the sun rises from the east making the use the force for the financial growth. 

The marketing & sales team members should also sit facing north or northeast ensuring proactive work.

The financial staff should sit at the southeast corner facing north to ensure financial growth.


Tip #2


According to Vastu Shastra, the accountant of the company should sit at the south-east corner of the office facing the north-east direction for an increase in wealth.

Vastu direction which influences the financial prosperity is north & northeast. These directions are ruled by the element of water, which indicates a person's financial status. Also, many Vastu experts suggest placing a mirror or Kuber yantra on the northern section of the office to assure financial opportunity.


Tip #3


The reception area of the office should have a clear view of people coming into the office. The reception area of the office creates a long-lasting impression for first-time visitors.

Do you remember those days when you used to come home from the scorching evening of hot summers.


Taking out a chilled bottle of water from the fridge, seizing a swig and your mom shouting from the other end of the hall "After coming home from hot weather,
consuming water from Clay Pots.".As a child, I never cared for her yelling but as an adult, I need to. But to my surprise drinking water from clay bottles provide our body with amazing earthy healing properties.

If you are a person who is prone to cold & cough or has asthma, but loves to sip on cold water. Then this eco-friendly clay bottle is the best option you can have, as it cools the water based on the climatic conditions, in fact, better than that pricey climate-intelligent refrigerator you bought from a store. Is your intelligent refrigerator this smart? No, right.

       


2. Improves Metabolism

Clay bottles increase the minerals of the water, which enhances digestion thus improving the metabolism. Whereas those cheap plastic bottles only seep cancer-causing chemicals into your water.

4. Self-cooling


The surface of the clay is porous. When we store water in clay bottle the porous surface helps it to cool the water through the process of vaporization. The Heat & moisture maintains a dynamic equilibrium to cool the water eliminating the use of refrigerators. It's not just cool, it's self-cool. Exercise increases your body temperature whereas sweating reduces the core temperature of your body to balance it. However, when the body perspires it loses a fair amount of water and electrolytes with it. Drinking cold water lowers your body’s core temperature to help preserve water.
