WHY IS THIS A SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT?
Unfortunately, a lot of Rattan is harvested without any respect for people and enviroment. Protection of the tropical rainforest is of major importance. According to the official figures of the Indonesian goverment, around 24 million hectares of rainforest in Indonesia was destroyed between 1990 and 2015. By harvesting our rattan sustainably and responsibly, we prevent the destruction of a small piece of tropical rainforest. We hope to set an example for others.

We garantuee workers in the tropical rainforest year-round work and thus a regular income. The staff in our rattan factory is provided with 2 warm meals a day. In addition, we try to increase the involvement of our staff by regulary informing them and seriously listening to their wishes and ideas.
