I don't know about you, but when Netflix fatigue gets the best of me, I go deep into Youtube's rabbit hole. Lately, my YT marathons have whisked me away into a whole vortex of Korean life vlogs—yes, those 30-minute videos where I just watch random Korean vloggers prepare homecooked meals, explore cafes around the city, and decorate their already aesthetic homes. Call it inspo hunting (since I'm also moving out into my home space), but I found the experience especially calming. Their video aesthetic is such a breath of fresh air from the usual Youtube channels I've come across, and after a long day, it's almost therapeutic to binge-watch them all.

Now, as I watch more closely, I started to notice a decor trend that looked awfully familiar. I spotted many vlogs to be homes of rattan furniture, especially those that bore our local solihiya weave!

In case you didn't know, solihiya weave is a sunburst pattern popularized in the country way back in the 19th-century Spanish colonial era. Perhaps coming from a rich Southeast Asian history, this particular rattan-weaving technique was a popular decor used as backrests and seats of chairs and chaise lounges. It was a practical choice of material since the weave lets air through, giving a cool and comfy rest amid the tropical heat.

Today, Koreans have taken a particular fascination to the solihiya weave. It has become a nice addition to their minimalist aesthetic—a lovely texture to use as an accent piece without intensely disrupting the room. What's more, it warms up the room just as well as any wooden furniture does.

A quick pull on Instagram proves that the trend does not only exist in the Youtube realm! Many IG dwellers have also visually expressed their love for the local weave.
