Here are my interviews with them:.
A: Woven rattan bags have been a signature of Indonesia craftwork for ages. History also shows the rattan bags were hardly accepted by global fashion mainstream. This is where our story begins. We travelled from east to west to learn about the culture and fashion aspects of woven rattan bags. We concluded there are several issues why the bags are hardly accepted.
The major ones are design and durability. Design wise, the existing natural rattan bags are not practical due to the poor and undeveloped rattan bag making techniques. Durability wise, the natural rattan easily cracks under pressure which gives out problematic splinters (rattan thorns and splinters could penetrate through skin and cause infection, they are not friendly to the fabric or dress either). Fungi and mold will also develop once the rattan is exposed to water or high humidity environment.
CHAMEO begs to differ. We choose the fashionable highly durable synthetic rattan made of HDPE recyclable plastic to replace the fragile rattan. The synthetic rattan not only outperform the durability issues, they are also much more vibrant. Our bag making techniques also g mercurial superfly ets a major facelift, many methods are derived from the Italian designer handbags’. We also revolutionized the stitching work and created several world’s first intricate weaving patterns.
What makes us uniques is our passion to make fashionable woven rattan bag.
