Project Rattan

from thailand

Shining a light on the talented craftspeople of Thailand

Project Rattan was born of a strong desire to keep the history of Thai traditional arts and crafts alive whilst in turn supporting the local economy and protecting the environment. In a market that is saturated with cheaper, inferior, and imported plastic products, we have built a bridge for designers to connect with factory workers locally in rattan and bamboo crafts.

 

No synthetics or plastics

 

Rattan is a natural material found in abundance across forests in Thailand, especially in the Southern part of the country. It has been used as a weaving and basket material for household objects and furniture since ancient times. Being a naturally renewable palm, it provides a perfect solution for the environment: no synthetics or plastics are used when we work with rattan, thereby not adding to the global crisis of plastic oversupply.
