Rustic bands of natural rattan are woven together to create this beautiful wicker coffin. The chestnut appearance comes from the rattan’s outer bark, which complements the natural handles and wooden toggles.

Rattan, also called Rotan, is a climbing vine of the Plectocomiopsis genus. These thorny vines can grow up to six meters a year, making it a rapidly renewable material for various uses, including our wicker coffins. Rattan grows throughout the forests of South East Asia. Because the vine clings to existing rainforest trees as it grows, it encourages the natural preservation of the forest and local fauna. Plantation owners actively manage large forest areas to keep renewed growth cycles intact. Rattan can grow in marginal soil and areas where other land products cannot grow.

Rural basket-making cooperatives handcraft our wicker coffins in two small villages on the outskirts of Surakarta and Cirebon. Production is split between two parts, with the rattan framing done by traditional Indonesian furniture framers and the weaving part of the process handled by artisans specialising in weaving. The different skills are combined to create a beautiful yet functional product. The process requires a reasonable degree of collaboration between parts of the community so that the finished coffins are ready for transportation.
