With the wrinkled leaves and yellowish-green hue, we bet even vendors may have a hard time distinguishing this version from the edible ingredient.


Place it in your pantry or basket and watch your auntie’s expression change upon realising that it’s actually not a vegetable.

Apparently, the texture of the fabric is even inspired by the structure of the leaves.

As a result, it can repel water during rainy days or serve as an effective shield from the sun during fair weather.
