I hadn’t realized how much work actually went into creating this decorative orb made out of vetiver root. When I examined it closely, I noticed that the “rope” is made of hundreds of strands that have been roughly but tightly wrapped, then arranged and tied to stay in place.
And it’s a multisensory experience: If you douse it with water, or keep it in a humid room, it lightly scents the air with vetiver. (The plant, not the band.)
