Fun Fact: Kombu basket is weaved out of only 3-single strands of Gebang stalks. The leaves must be fresh, not dry and carefully woven to reach a uniform diameter. Weavers must select and calculate the width and length of each stalk, which is a difficult feat considering the unique nature of each leaf. That’s why this item from Ngada Regency of East Flores is extra special and unique! Available in various sizes, use our versatile basket as your stationary organizer, as a laundry basket, a cover for indoor plant pot, and many more!

Keep the weaving dry. Do not store it in humid conditions to prevent the product from changing color. If the product is exposed to water, clean it using a soft cloth and dry it in the sun, until it is dry. Don’t fill with items that are heavy or too full that can change the shape of the webbing. Keep away from sources of ignition or heat for long periods of time.

Social Impact

Promote Culture

Weaving, although a cultural heritage and old practice in the local Flores community, has been mainly limited to household use only. Similarly, weaving can also be traced back to decades-old family tradition in Kalimantan, Papua & many parts of Indonesia. These dying handcraft arts are replaced by other activities of higher perceived value and practicality. 

 

As Du Anyam embarked on a journey to advocate women empowerment, we have been able to find and reconnect with many Nusantara legacies. Through several culture-promoting strategies such as weaving curriculum for high school students, year-round training for weavers, we hope to not only preserve but also revive the priceless arts of Indonesia.
