Handwoven basket in classic natural shade featuring the traditional batik 'kawung' motif in its woven pattern.

As part of Alika Day's home range, they work with small-scale weavers based in villages in Central Java. Unlike large-scale weavers who have big contracts with multinational companies, the weavers they work with do not have sophisticated working tools or processes. Despite this, the weavers are able to produce equally beautiful home pieces albeit at a slower production pace – this is something that Alika Day consciously takes into account and work around to be able to continue making a difference in their lives.


Banana leaf bark and cotton yarn. Please dry basket thoroughly if it gets wet.


Small - 25cm diameter x 35cm height

Alika Day started with the mission of contributing to the livelihood of makers in Indonesia in a meaningful and sustainable way. With a personal background in the country, this is a cause that is near and dear to their founder's heart.

Their product journeys started from the makers they met. Working closely with small-scale makers (never factories), they got to understand the craft techniques unique to them and how they could create beautiful pieces for the modern consumer without sacrificing on heritage. As part of their pledge, Alika Day works with makers and maker coordinators in Indonesia who are equally committed to ensuring fair working practices for all. Decent living wage, dignified working conditions and upskilling for their makers are core to their operations.
