Stalks of bamboo and rattan are harvested, cured, and cut into strips. The thin strips of bamboo are expertly woven through the rattan stalks using intricate weaving methods. The artists' skill allows the creation of unique shapes and designs. Finally, the products are dipped in rubber tree sap, a natural, non-toxic preservative, before being dried and finished.
