Vienna straw is made from rattan, a vine palm tree found in Indonesia. This plant grows in abundance and does not belong to the protected species because it is so fast and easy to grow. The manufacturing process is long and meticulous in order to obtain threads of the same thickness.
The plant is completely natural and is not associated with agents harmful to the environment. The caning is then allowed thanks to traditional craftsmanship and know-how that give it a very singular appearance.
Straw remains a natural element with all its peculiarities and some inclusions or colour differences may be visible on our products. A particularity that we wanted to keep for our handbags in order to make each piece unique.
Transparency is not a choice but our philosophy
