The Story Behind It

Perfectly Pandan

Pandan is a fiber made from the leaves of the pandan tree, also known as the pandanus palm. While not actually closely related to the palm tree, this hearty tree grows mainly throughout the tropical and subtropical pacific in regions like Southeast Asia, Polynesia and Micronesia where it has evolved to endure drought and strong winds.

Especially popular in the Philippines, pandan leaves are collected from the wild. Only the young leaves are cut, which allows for quick regrowth. With a distinctly fragrant aroma, pandan leaves are a favorite ingredient in Southeast Asian cooking, where they're used in curries and even desserts. Skilled craftspeople also love working with pandan leaves to create woven handicrafts. Because pandan leaves take on dye nicely, our artisans are able to create brightly colored placemats, flatware storage, coasters and napkin rings that boast unique, tropical style. Any one of our attractive pandan accessories will enliven your table setting with their vibrant, exotic appeal.
