About us

Ellen Brouwer Founder CEO

ELMY INTERIORS was founded in 1996.

At that time I worked as a buyer for a tour operator specialized in South East Asia. I also needed to explore Myanmar. As a souvenir I brought back some rattan under plates which are nowadays, mind you, still very much on trend!

Mid 90’s there seemed to be a big demand in Europe for these outstanding rattan handwoven accessories and furniture. I decided to go back to Myanmar to do research in getting a better understanding of the market and found myself a fantastic local partner, with whom we are still working. ELMY INTERIORS was born and a success from the beginning.

In all the years circumstances in Myanmar have always been more challenging than in neighboring countries, with at least more democratic regimes. We always had to fight against the stream, but never gave up.

From the early beginning we kept working on our designs and production process. The skilled and precise weaving combined with good quality rattan and bamboo makes the product look beautiful. It is pure craftsmanship. We also invested in machines for making synthetic wicker, both furniture and accessories. We have a capacity of shipping of about 100 containers a year.

Since 2012 democracy set its first steps in Myanmar, which gave us wings. We received larger orders, also from international retail chains. Just recently, in 2021, an unexpected setback for the country came across with te February 1 coup. The junta is aiming to get back in control. Myanmar is still struggling with this.

We are pleased to inform you that our factory is running and in full production. Your support will be highly appreciated and we are very looking forward to doing business with you.
