Textiles are any goods produces by weaving, knitting or felting. Crops are grown for their fibres traditionally used to make paper, cloth or rope.
Reedboards are suitable for internal use as a base for plastering on walls and ceilings as a practical alternative to plasterboard. They can also provide a curved backing for plaster. Boards can also be used unfinished to create feature walls, as an insulation board or to act as a permanent framework. It can be used externally in landscaping schemes to form natural partitions. It is suitable to use with lime, clay or gypsum plasters. The reeds allow firm keying of basecoat plasters. One base coat is usually sufficient
