Large Rattan Wicker Basket
A Large Rattan Wicker Basket 60cm high, 45cm diameter
These very strong wicker baskets are made from natural unprocessed rattan. The handles are woven into the structure of the basket so they will not drop off.
The rattan vine can be gathered from the rain forest without causing damage to the trees and Emily is working in partnership with The Katingan Project , an Ecosystem Restoration Concession (ERC) in Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. She has set up her “Earth’s Baskets” wicker workshops on the edge of the forest and works directly with the Dayak villagers offering them an alternative source of revenue to logging and clearing the forest for palm oil plantations.
