Seagrass

Eco-friendly seagrass (or also called palm leaves) are used as a material for baskets, cushions and placemats. Seagrass grows abundantly in Indonesia and grows back quickly after being harvested. This makes it a quickly renewable and sustainable fibre.

Low impact sourcing & production process

1. Hand cut & Sundried

When being harvested, the seagrass is first sliced by hand using knives and then dried under the sun.

2. Crafted by hand

The seagrass gets twisted into ropes by hand and then dried again. After spindled into one single rope, it can stretch out up to 50 meters. These ropes are used for the basketweaving.

3. Saves energy

Seagrass products are always made by hand or with simple tools but never with machines. Even the dyeing of the ropes happens with the use of a traditional stove and no electricity. This results into a very low environmental impact.

Creating job opportunities

From harvesting until the end product, the entire process is executed by hand and/or with the support of simple traditional tools. Multiple people are involved, which means more jobs and income for the rural communities.
