Indo Risakti

Yogyakarta-born Indo Risakti is a label that specialises in environmentally friendly decorative products for sustainable homes. Their collection
of baskets, vases, and other interior accessories are made using unused items that would otherwise be trash.

But, another man’s trash is another man’s treasure: with the help of skillful Indonesian artisans, Indo Risakti transforms old newspapers, waste candy wrappers, cloth cuttings, and cast-off materials like sea grass and natural straws, into artsy home décor items.

Find anything from wall mirrors to bags in a plethora of sizes, textures, materials, and shapes. The wall mirrors, for instance, come in frames that
are either woven, carved, painted, or plaited. While some would be a pleasant accessory for a contemporary home, others would be better poised for an ethnic-inspired interior concept.
