The Citizenry  Designing modern goods for the well-traveled home. All ethically crafted by artisans around the world. #citizenmade

It’s incredible to watch these master artisans take a pile of manau rattan plants and, through some skilled cutting, molding, and binding, create a woven masterpiece. With each intricate twist or stitch, you can trace the generations behind this difficult practice.

To get to the remote village of Kampung Naga, you’ll walk through a lush rainforest, down 400 (yes, 400…) stone steps, and across fields of rice terraces. It’s here you’ll find the true masters of rattan. This material is pretty much everywhere you look – from the walls of their houses to the baskets holding their meals, they know a thing or two about this ancient craft.

A bathroom that doubles as a spa? Yes, please.

Places we'd rather be: Flores Island, soaking up this dreamy sunset.

Fun fact: each one of our Solor Palm Baskets is handwoven with over 500 strips of palmyra leaves. The end result? An incredibly durable (not to mention, beautiful...) hexagon pattern that can only be done by the most experienced weavers.

Meet "Mama Osa." One of the master weavers behind our Solor Palm Baskets. As the oldest and most experienced weaver in the cooperative (she's been at it for over 40 years!), she's pretty much an icon in the community. Gentle and soft spoken, as a true artist, she lets her incredible work speak for itself.

When The Citizenry was first started, we set out to build bridges - to bring regions, cultures, and perspectives together from around the world. As we celebrate our country today, let's remember the beauty in our diversity, the strength in our differences.
