Our rattan products are village craft products produced in rural homes outside of Yangon. Traditionally a farming area where work is seasonal, our rattan products provide much needed work year round to homes in the region. Our products are distributed to a number of homes in the area who have been weaving rattan baskets for many years. Each piece is carefully woven to give a high quality finish.
To ensure the correct size and shape of each product a framer usually works with a home group of weavers. They are responsible to ensure the shape and size of each product is correct by making the inner frame for the weavers to weave the skin around the product.
Following weaving the surface of the rattan is not smooth due the nature of the rattan and there are many split hairs. In order to make sure the final product shipped to our customers around the world it is essential that every product is sanded on a number of occasions to ensure a smooth surface.
After weaving the journey has just begun. The products are sent to our facility on the outskirts of Yangon for QC and colouring before labelling and packing before being shipped.
Every product that arrives to our Yangon facility is checked on arrival for good quality weaving, size and shape.
The products have a lot of split small hairs that need removing and it is our QC departments job to make sure these hairs are removed and the surface of the product is of a high quality. This process almost takes as long as the weaving itself.
Before final packing, we check all products to ensure the shape, quality, balance etc... of the products are of the highest quality before packing for shipment to sell in stores around the world.
