Important announcement for our customers
Reed prices are going up and some sizes may be difficult to keep in stock.
The reed you buy in coils is made from rattan and most of it is presently produced in Indonesia. As far back as the early '90's export controls were placed on rattan but they were not serriously enforced until recently. A good article in The Reeders' Report (North Carolina Basketmakers Association, Inc.) explains this in detail.
We don't expect rattan reed to disappear, and it's still a great bargain when compared to, for instance, red cedar bark used by some basketmakers - but the prices will be unstable.
