We support Slow Fashion by respecting traditional methods of crafting rattan - an incredible skillset perfected and handed down through generations. By acknowledging true craftsmanship in a high waste, fast fashion world, we are restoring handmade craft traditions that are as old as time.
Rattan grows all year round and provides an alternative to logging. Rattan planting and harvesting is one way to restore the decreasing population of trees and forests. The rattan used in our hand woven bedheads, chairs, tables and cabinets comes from the liana plant. It’s a sustainable material that roots itself in the soil and grows up to 100 meters high onto trees in the rainforests. The residents who live in or nearby are employed to harvest the rattan liana carefully by hand, leaving the surrounding trees in tact. After collecting the long branches, they take the top shoot of the liana and plant it back into the ground at the bottom of the tree so the growing process can start all over again.
