Two Cranes' quality products are produced in a village on the southeastern end of the island of Bali. They are completely handwoven and handcrafted through a precise and lengthy process. The rattan is split into thin strips (for the fine weave) and wet down to be woven. Using a needle, a fine tight weave is produced. After weaving (2-3 days) the items are dried for several days in the sun, then they are put into a "smoking" chamber where coconut husks are burned. This is how the the rattan obtains the beautiful honey-brown color. The process is completely natural and there are no dyes, stains or finishing products used on any of the items.Two Cranes has built and nurtured the relationships with the artisan families in the villages where the art is created and are honored to share the quality and craftsmanship of the many traditions of their beautiful cultures.
