These workers at our factory in Bali are humble, hard working people, who have
been taught this trade from family, passed on from generation to generation. This
weaving is truly an art. This furniture is EARTH FRIENDLY. In contrast, furniture
with metal frames or synthetic "look alike" wicker end up in our landfills and
oceans...but this will not as at some point, will simply bio degrade.
When completely finished, (refer to photo on left below) the strength of woven
seagrass has been compared to the strength of steel cable. Inside the reeds with a
hard natural outer casing, are nylon-like threads.
You can feel good about your purchase from OCEANSIDE LIVING AND DECOR, as it
is a small way of keeping our environment safe.
