Why We Love It？
Multipurpose Storage Basket
Why Is Rattan Basket So Expensive?
- One reason is that wild vines are scarce and can only be picked in the autumn.
- Rattan can only be picked in October and November, when the toughness, density and color of the vines meet the technological requirements due to the seasonal change.
- The forest roads to pick vines are steep, it is expensive to pick and transport them manually.
- Labor costs are rising every year as the number of traditional craftsmen is dwindling. It takes two to four days to make a basket like this by hand.
The Story Of Handmade Crafts
The real traditional handicraft of wicker basket storage has a history of thousands of years. Because the raw materials used are natural grass products, only a few cities along the southern coast can be woven so, plus the whole manual weaving, time-consuming and laborious, there are no many people keep making grass woven products. It's a dying craft. But good thing is we are still promoting it, hope we can try our best to support the incomes of local farmers.
