Here I am showing you'll as how to make heat resistent stands with different types of fibers.As far as I know these are tradionally done in south India and Srilanka in a low budget scale.The poor people make this by hand (not the t-shirt one) and sell them on the road way, to earn some thing for their day to day living.This is not only a pot holder,can be used for warm dishes on the table too.
The main thing is once completed it has to be 100% flat on both sides.If not the pot/dish will topple down.So watch out!!
I have used vases and bottle to take the size of the ring.You can use any utensils depending on the size you want.I try my best to avoid buying stuffs for my projects and used all what I have in the cellar.
Since there are 6 types of fibers involved in this project,just to show one way of doing a pot/dish holder there are loads of photos that I have published.
I have tried my best and cut down as much as I can,so please do not get annoyed with too much of pictures.Some people like with more pictures and some prefer less.Some understand looking at the pictures alone ,
The three made out of Coir,yarn and plastic is flexible and can be twisted to any shape you want.
