La Exportadora del Minbre was founded by lawyer Miguel Laso Tortosa in 1960 to export wicker products. Tortosa had identified a gap in the European market for products made from natural materials. Fifty years on and with the third generation of the Laso family at the helm, Expormim is still the world's most respected manufacturer of artisan-crafted rattan furniture, selling its wares in more than 40 countries across the globe. Way ahead of the green revolution, Expormim's products are naturally eco-friendly and the range encompasses every facet of the home, both Indoor and Outdoor.
Recently they have reissued some of their classic 1970's designs, such as the elegant Nautica (hanging seat) in UV resistant materials and alumimium. Expormim designers are amongst the most acclaimed in the world.
