Made out of dried plant materials from Seagrass/ Water hyacinth/ Banana Leaves.
Each basket is handcrafted individually by artisans in Central Java, Indonesia. To make the baskets sturdy and long-lasting, leaves and roots of the plants are dried and stripped into small, long strips and weaved into a basket, starting from the base. The baskets are often reinforced and decorated with the use of fishing line, colourful threads etc. as well as treated to ensure there's no mould or infestation.
