About Rattan Island

Rattan-Island was established in 2005 between a European expat and a local Myanmar citizen to create a factory manufacturing rattan decorative accessories in Burma to establish an export network to distribute home decorative gift items under the brand name Rattan Island.

After previously working for over 7 years with a competing factory both Nanthar and Steven set about exploring a start up of their own to export high quality Myanmar hand made rattan products.  With Nanthar's past experience of production and Steven's strong understanding of the international market it allowed us to quickly become a market leader for the export of Burmese handicrafts.

From our start, trading from premises of other factories, we quickly realised that we would not be able to expand and bring our expectations for the highest quality rattan products to market and therefore in 2007 we soon started our own finishing factory about 45 mins from downtown Yangon.

Today with a strong understanding of the international markets requirements for quality products at a very competitive price rattan Island has become thea leading manufacturer and exporter of rattan home accessories from Yangon, Myanmar (Burma) to USA (North America), U.K (England), France, Spain, Germany, Australia, South America, Russia, and many more countries.

The majority of our products can be viewed on our website which is updated regular with new collections and sold for importers at factory prices.

As well as providing our gift items to homes around the world Rattan Island also provides employment to approximately 100 workers at our factory and also provides much needed work to the skilled craftsmen  in rural Myanmar.

As rattan island continues to strengthen our position as the leading rattan gift exporter in South East Asia we very much look forward to creating an active partnership to work with you in providing you with our product range, allowing you to enjoy supplying our natural products to your customers.
