SOEJI products are artfully crafted unique pieces. Due to hand manufacturing and natural variations in materials, they may vary slightly in size, color and shape.

Main materials: seagrass, banana fiber

These baskets are made from plant fibers. They therefore smell and feel wonderfully natural.

What is usually referred to as “seagrass” by basket makers is actually not an (under)water plant, but a small, palm-like plant that is widespread on sandy beaches in the tropics of Asia. The leaves of the plants often cultivated by humans are separated, cut into strips, dried and then processed by hand.

Banana fiber is the fibers of the layered trunks of agricultural banana trees. The intense brown color occurs naturally when the fibers are dried in the sun for about a week. The individual ribbons are then rolled into the characteristic, approx. 6 mm thick strands. Only old, dying banana trees are used for this material. This gives these plants a second life as a dimensionally stable and robust raw material for many handmade baskets.

Other material: nylon thread

This basket is handmade in Java, Indonesia.
