The rattan has a wax finish that protects it from moisture. Indonesia has a rich heritage of weaving rattan; an important cultural tradition was to weave rattan into Apais, these are decorative matts that were used to dress traditional long houses.
Baskets were also woven with specific purposes in mind such as washing, carrying and storing food. We are careful to ensure the rattan used in production of our products is cultivated sustainably.
The cultivation of rattan in Indonesia has delayed deforestation in some areas, this is because it has become such a valuable material that logging has been stopped to allow rattan growth.
