Our expertise

Creating a Pagan item is a long and meticulous job. We found these golden hands in Myanmar (formerly Burma). There, this talent is passed on in the families, it allows the peasants to have an income when they cannot work in the fields during the monsoon.

Our production

First step

Once harvested and dried, the rattan fibre is separated into two parts:

The weaving

Second step

Then begins the majestic ballet of the golden hands. Each family has its own particular know-how, here they “carve” the round pieces such as the baskets, there they meticulously knot the fibres of the famous thermos jugs.
The work is divided up according to the talent of each person.
Once the article has been woven, it is stored and then transported to Rangoon, 4 hours away by truck, to be checked and finished.


Third step

The first phase of the finishing process is burning. This delicate operation consists of burning with a torch the micro-fibres that may protrude from the article.
The dexterity of the burner is used to eliminate the small fibres without burning the weave.

finishing touches

Fourth step

The high quality standards of the Pagan collection require continuous monitoring throughout the manufacturing process. Upon arrival at the Rangoon workshop, each article is examined, each irregularity in the weaving or fibre is marked, and then repaired or eliminated.


Fifth step

Once the retouching has been validated by a new control, the article can then go to the paint shop. A primer varnish is applied before the final colour is chosen (honey or aged white). The honey is a direct tone, while the white ceruse is brushed and wiped to obtain beautiful aged contrasts.

The check

Last step

Some references of the Pagan collection require a final step before
before shipping. For example, the pourers are tested for leaks before being packed. Our range of trays with wooden handles are also subject to a thorough visual inspection to guarantee an impeccable wood finish.
