Artisans who reside and work in remote villages in the South Pacific, hand-make each of the products in this collection. The vines they use to construct them - called "vignes d'eau" - only grow in remote mountain jungles. However, once reaped, the vines grow back quickly, leaving no damage in their native forests. Barely one-fourth as thick as typical rattan, the vine takes 1-7 days to hand-weave into a finished design but yields a substantially more durable, heat resistant product. Earnings from weaving help provide artisans and their villages with better food, healthcare and transportation. Calaisio, Inc. invests a substantial amount of its profits back into these villages to further improve education and infrastructure.
