Raga is a true all-rounder in your home. Use it as a stylish fruit bowl in the kitchen to elegantly present fresh fruit, or as a unique bread basket on the breakfast table that will immediately attract the attention of all guests. In addition, the artfully woven bowl can also serve as an unusual wall decoration and give your rooms an individual touch. There are no limits to your imagination when using raga.

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

Main material: raffia

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

Bast (Corypha utan) occurs naturally in the steppe and forest areas of Southeast Asia. The plant renews its leaves about every two years and sheds the old ones, which are then collected by people, dried in the sun for a few days to weeks and, depending on the desired degree of browning, made into basketry. The relative rarity and the higher processing effort make this material slightly more expensive compared to other plant fibers. While it is hardly known in Europe, the material has proven itself among the local population in Southeast Asia in the form of all kinds of everyday objects and is very popular due to its pleasantly soft but robust nature.

This basket is handmade in Java, Indonesia.
