WICKER BECOMES PRICELESS
WHEN IT’S LOVED THROUGH GENERATIONS
WOVEN TO LAST
Our wicker products are woven by hand in Indonesia by local artisans. They’re all natural – no chemicals are used – and become more greyish over time if exposed to cold and wet weather.
The material is first soaked, which makes it flexible and manageable.
After that, the material can be processed. The weavers get to work with the flexible wicker, and the product gradually takes shape.
Wicker is used at Sempre for various products: from lamps to storage baskets. As a base material, we choose between rattan, water hyacinth, and rope. Due to a wide selection of weavings and colorings, the options are endless!
GOOD TO KNOW
You might want to know this up front!
Our rattan is not treated chemically and is thus a natural product. Its natural color is light brownish. No special protection or coating is applied. Therefore, outside exposure will decrease the product’s life span, shape, and color, with the latter becoming more greyish over time. To reduce this process, you may treat the rattan with oil or TPS.
Rattan is a semi-outdoor material, which means that the product is designed for outdoor use during summer and should be taken indoors during the colder, wetter seasons. However, we recommend you place rattan furniture under a roof or lean-to at all times to enjoy a longer life span, even in summer.
WOVEN BY HAND
Our rattan products are woven by hand, so the ends of the rattan can come loose. If so, they can be tucked in again or cut off.
