Meet The Creators: Bengok Craft
Bengok Craft is a community empowerment-based incision business that processes water hyacinth into various crafts. Bengok Craft means Bengok is a water hyacinth designation and Craft is a cart. Bengok Craft was made because it wanted to bring this unique, classic, ethnic local product to the global realm. Some of the products that Bengok Craft produces are sandals, hats, jackets, and many others.
The main ingredient used by the bengok craft is water hyacinth, because most of the residents of Rawa Pening are fishermen who if they want to sail are held back by a lot of water hyacinth, so they start to shift their focus to being water hyacinth seekers because it is difficult to sail to the middle of the river or lake.
