About Calaisio, Inc.:Calaisio seeks to bring the world products of timeless design, quality and durability while taking care of the environment and giving back to the communities of the artisans who create them. These artisans, who reside and work in remote villages in the South Pacific, hand-make each of the products in this collection. The vines they use to construct them — called “vignes d’eau” or water-vines — only grow in remote mountain jungles and are very difficult to reach and challenging to harvest. However, once reaped, the vines grow back quickly, leaving no damage in their native forests. The water-vine takes 1-7 days to hand-weave into a finished design but yields a substantially more durable, heat-resistant and elegant product.
