Tumbak is handmade from banana fiber in a slow process by a family workshop specializing in basket weaving. The robust material is shaped like a classic bulbous vase and the design is rounded off with applications made of lighter raffia at the top and bottom.

Vases made from woven natural materials such as tumbak are the perfect counterpart to dried flowers or palm fronds. With a suitable inner container, green plants can also be placed inside. This large vase, more than half a meter high, is sure to become one of the most eye-catching highlights in your home.

Dimensions: Diameter (at widest point) x Height: 25x56 cm

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: banana fiber

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

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 materials: raffia, nylon thread, metal frame

This vase was handmade in Java, Indonesia.
