This Christmas tree skirt is hand-woven from rattan. Rattan is the general name for all climbing palms, it is one of the most versatile materials used in the manufacturing industry. 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.
Through building successful family businesses, and collaborating with Pekerti to access fair trade markets, the rurally-based artisans of Pekerti have been able to remain in their communities rather than migrating to the cities. Small numbers of both male and female artisans make up the family-based artisan groups, sharing skills and collaborating to bring positive benefits for people and planet.Read more
