Raffia (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, depending on the desired degree of browning, and processed into woven goods. The relative rarity and the higher processing effort make this material slightly more expensive compared to other plant fibers. While it is hardly known here in Europe, the material has proven itself among the local population in Southeast Asia in the form of all sorts of everyday objects and is very popular due to its pleasantly soft, yet robust texture.

Place of production: This basket was handmade in Java, Indonesia .

When selecting local producers, SOEJI attaches great importance to fair pay and good working conditions.
