These extremely strong and durable log baskets are woven from, unbleached, wild, rattan vines. The large log baskets have 4 handles so they can be lifted by two people. The handles are woven into the structure of the basket so they do not drop off.
The baskets have a beautiful natural colour because all the rattan gathered is used, including the darker waste rattan that cannot be sold to the rattan factories in Java and China.The baskets are a traditional design used by the indigenous Dayak communities to collect rubber and fruits in the rainforest.
It has been tried and tested for hundreds of years in an extreme working environment. They are shower proof and tough and will last for years in the house or garden. The rattan is cultivated and gathered from the rainforest without causing damage to the forest.
Emily has set up the “Planet Basket” workshops to enable the local Dayak community to grow and make sustainable rattan baskets to export directly to the global market. She is working in partnership with the Katingan Project, a 200 000 hectare Ecosystem Restoration Concession (ERC) in central Kalimantan, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing deforestation and restoring the peat swamp forests whilst safeguarding the community and biodiversity in the region.
