Seagrass is a species associated with the history of the craft village, from hundreds of years of encroaching on the sea. It can be seen as a symbolic plant for Kim Son - the original craft village of Artera Home.
After being processed, seagrass has high toughness, which is easy to bend to the desired shape. In addition, it has a natural luster and smooth surface and holds the color so well that we do not need to dye it. Therefore, we often use this material for decorative products such as carpets, wall decor, or placemats.SHOP NON-TOPIC SEAGRASS
Rattan is associated with all regions of Vietnam. Besides being resistant to pests and diseases, rattan can live in different weather conditions, making it one of the primary raw materials for craft villages.
Due to its lightweight and flexibility, rattan is malleable into in-house pieces of furniture. Because of its extreme toughness, rattan is considered a staple of the Boho style - featuring curved, wavy furniture.SHOP DURABLE RATTAN
In the past, water hyacinths' rapid development obstructed waterway traffic and polluted the environment. Later, water hyacinth was exploited as a potential raw material for craft villages, which has positively impacted the environment.
Because water hyacinth yarn is thick and large, it creates tight and firm weaving lines. Therefore, we mainly use this material for storage & organization products. To prevent water hyacinth from molding when exposed to water, artisans clean, dry, and steam it very carefully.SHOP ORGANIC WATER HYACINTH
Originating from abroad but being imported to Vietnam hundreds of years ago, jute has accompanied the people of the Northern region in the war history to the present.
Jute has a brown color and natural gloss, so we take advantage of its rusticity to make wall decor. Its good water absorption is also very suitable for making rugs. After not in use, jute will decompose into the soil, which is environmentally friendly.SHOP RUSTIC JUTE
Bamboo is a unique cultural feature for Vietnamese, symbolizing resilient and indomitable vitality. Bamboo can be found anywhere in Vietnam, especially in rural villages.
The bamboo trunk, which is as strong as wood, is malleable. So we process bamboo into small pieces for knitting, creating ultra-lightweight and long-lasting products. You can catch our unique designs, such as wall decor, trays, and chimes.
Today, fibers belonging to the palm family and originating from Madagascar are gradually becoming popular.
What drives our attention to the raffia is its incredible lightness. Moreover, it is very soft and resistant, so we decided to weave it into eco-friendly baskets. Plus, due to raffia's excellent dye absorption, it's hard to ignore the idea of making decorative items.
