Tumbak is made by hand from banana fibers in a slow process by a family workshop specialized in basket weaving. The sturdy material is shaped like a classic ball vase and the design is finished with applications of lighter colored raffia at the top and bottom.

Vases made from woven natural materials such as tumbak are the perfect counterpart to dried flowers or palm leaves. However, with a suitable indoor container, green plants can also be grown. This large vase of more than half a meter high is guaranteed to become one of the most eye-catching highlights in your home.

Please also note our other offers - in our store you will find many different baskets, home accessories and bags made from sustainable materials under fair production conditions.

Main material: banana fiber

Our vases are made from vegetable fibers. They smell and therefore feel wonderfully like nature.

Banana fibers are the fibers from the layered trunks of banana trees used in agriculture. The intense brown color occurs naturally when the fibers are dried in the sun for about a week. The individual strips are then rolled into the characteristic, approximately 6 mm thick strands. Only old, dying banana trees are used for this material. This gives these crops a second life as a dimensionally stable and robust raw material for many handmade baskets here at Soeji.

Other materials: raffia, nylon thread, metal frame
