Founded a little less than a year ago, Asia Resources Merchandising USA manufactures and wholesales hand-woven baskets, containers, home décor products and other household items imported directly from Asia. Based in Southern California, Asia Resources provides high quality products and competitive prices to retailers who operate in the gift, food service, and gardens markets.
With more than 800 different types of hand-woven baskets and other items for home, office, and garden in stock, the wholesaler is dedicated to using natural products. The company sells baskets with long handles of different shapes and sizes, perfect for flowers, weddings, and other special events. The gardens and lawns line features hanging baskets, wall baskets, and teapot planters ideal for plants of all kinds. In addition, the wholesaler’s reusable bags, made of different varieties of rope, twine, straw and grass, are a great way to shop with a good-looking, colorful substitute for store bags. They are also beneficial towards the mission of saving the environment.
Natural Materials Help the Environment
“These items are all made in China, Vietnam, and Indonesia, and they are all handmade,” says Joseph Shi, owner. “Over 90% of my items are made from natural materials, so they can be disposed of easily, unlike plastics.” Using plants such as bamboo, fern, mountain grass, willow, and coconut palm tree, all of which grow in the rural areas of Asia, helps the Earth’s ecosystem. Because manufacturing synthetic products such as plastic produces pollution and damages the health of both workers and residents living near the factories of developing countries, Asia Resources’ handmade merchandise is a quality alternative.
In addition, the sale of the baskets and the other merchandise for sale benefits the families that make them. For Shi, this is a major benefit to his products. “Because the makers of these baskets live in very poor areas, if we promote and sell their products, then they will have money to send their kids to school and improve their lives,” he notes. Asia Resources Merchandising USA has catalogs in PDF form of each of their product lines on their website, asiaresourcesusa.com, so consumers can see the specifications and sizes of each item. There is currently no minimum wholesale order size.
