Report highlights colorful designs made of natural materials

Makers from Indonesia offer basketware in bright colors and novelty designs to provide buyers with modern design options. While still producing items highlighting the natural color of the material, suppliers are releasing new basketware models in pastels and vibrant colors such as blue, green, and red to create a diversity in their collection.

Producers usually offer basketware in rattan, a variety of palm that is sourced within the country. Indonesia is considered one of the top producers of rattan, accounting for 70 to 80 percent of global supply.

“To cater to the demand for eco-friendly products, Indonesia suppliers offer basketware in rattan, bamboo and pandan, which are natural, sustainable and accessible materials,” said Putro Agus Harnowo, export consultant for the Hinrich Foundation.

Other environment-friendly varieties used in basketware are seagrass, mendong grass and water hyacinth. Water hyacinth, for instance, is an invasive and rapidly growing plant that can pollute waterways. Suppliers have managed to convert this into a pliable material that can be woven into basketware and furniture.
