We have created these sets of a variety of crafts and basketry from the islands we work with. Each piece has been chosen carefully as wonderful gifts throughout the year or to decorate your own home 

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 dish 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 baskets until she finishes the entire basket. The height of the chicken on the lid or covering is determined by the size of the lontar leaf.
