Project Title Loofah Wallpaper
Project Category Innovation
Abstract The Loofah is an all-year-round plant with huge yellow flowers and 5-7 multisplit leaves. Its fruits are cylindrical and upon ripening the interior is transformed into a spongy fibrous mesh-like mass. After special treatment (cleaning and bleaching), Loofah is used as sponges for bathing and massaging. The advantages of using the Loofah are for stimulating blood circulation, skin care, massage and relaxing the body after bathing, and it is non-allergic. The Loofah Wallpaper which is sound-proof and odourless can be used as a room coolant and decorative item. Loofah Wallpaper has not been found in any interior decorations such as wallpaper. This Loofah Wallpaper can be made by using the Loofah fruit that has already been dried through the drying process and transforming it into wallpaper. The marketability of this product will help the economy of farmers and small industries.
