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 material: water hyacinth

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

Water hyacinth is a tropical aquatic plant that grows along rivers and lakes. It actually comes from South America, but was also introduced to Southeast Asia. There it is considered a weed because it reproduces incredibly quickly and can cover entire bodies of water with a carpet of leaves. The resulting lack of light and oxygen causes all underwater life to die, which is why the plants have to be removed regularly. To prepare the plants for further processing, the leaves are cut off and the thick stems are dried in the sun for three to seven days. The result is a sustainable raw material that is available in abundance here at Soeji for many woven goods.

Other materials: cotton

This basket is handmade in Java, Indonesia.
