The rattan is coloured a soft white grey by mixing mud and a local leaf and then submerging the product in this mix for three weeks. The basket is then aired for a month. This is also a natural treatment against woodworm. Handmade by skilled weavers working with Pekerti Nusantara, our fair trade partner in Indonesia.
