We have created these sets of a variety of crafts and basketry from the islands we work with. This specially curated set is of basketry from the royal compound of Rindi, Sumba used traditionally to serve guests of honour.

The palm leaves are from a lontar palm tree that is over 50 years old as the carbohydrates found in the leaves is much lower than in younger trees. By choosing leaves from these older trees for the basketry they are not eaten by insects so the baskets maintain their strength and beauty for long time. These baskets can be washed with a gentle soap and dried in the sun after their use in the same way a traditional community would clean them.

The basket weaver begins at the tip of the nose of the chicken on these Ndabi Ri and Ndabi Wai baskets until she finishes the entire basket. The height of the chicken is determined by the size of the lontar leaf.
