Our Watervine range is made from the Nito vine, a slender fern plant native to the Philippines. The Nito stem darkens as It grows, turning from green to brown and eventually black. This mix of lighter and darker colours gives watervine products a distinctive appearance, different to standard rattan.The plant grows high up and is more challenging to harvest than rattan. In fact, it takes longer to gather the vine than it does for the native Filipino weavers to make the basket!

A recent addition but has become very popular our stylish Water-Vine Rattan waste paper basket. It is in a tight water-vine weave, which is a darker rattan with streaks of very very dark brown to add interest to the design. Available in 2 sizes, Standard and Small. 

For cleaning rinse out with soap water and dry throughly.

Dimensions :

Standard : 24, 29cm 

Small : 23 x 23 cm  (W,H)

There is a long basket-making tradition in the Philippines, now a major centre of basket-weaving craft. The process is still done entirely by hand, producing extremely high-quality products.
