Each basket are completely handcrafted using time-honoured, heritage techniques. Our artisan mamas work out of the comfort of their own homes and make our baskets between looking after their small children and running the household. We support our local Vietnamese artisans and their families by creating an income and ensuring the continuation of the fine art of craftsmanship.
Rattan is not only beautiful. It is strong and sustainable. Rattan is a natural vine, a member of the palm family, and the particular type of rattan that is used to make our furniture can grow up to a hundred meters or more in length. It is considered to be a sustainable resource because when harvested, the roots are left in the ground, allowing the plant to simply regrow rather than the need for it to be replanted. Unlike timber, which takes many decades to regrow, rattan can replenish itself at the rate of several feet per day.
