After falling in love with the artistry and understanding the decline in the demand for handwoven jobs, we aim to shine light on this beautiful art through modern, considered design using the finest and most natural materials.
All our materials are responsibly sourced.
The rattan seed is planted on a small family farm in the Philippines, it is nurtured and grown to around 6 feet where it is then cut, prepared and then sent to our small village of artisans in China.
Each basket is intricately hand-made in our home village in China using age-old techniques that have been handed down through generations of highly skilled artisans. Once this process is complete, each basket is sent to our small studio in England.
We source our baskets from our small hometown village in China, the same village where our 嫲嫲 (māma, grandmother) used to hand weave.
We work with a tannery based out of Tuscany that specialise in the highest quality Italian vegetable tanned leather. Moving away from the chrome tanned leather you often see in many handbags, the method of tanning our leather uses natural materials such as bark, leaves and other natural tannins to achieve the end result.
