Unlike other mass-produced, rattan-style bags, this bag is made of ata grass, a rainforest plant recognized for its durability and resistance to heat, water, and insects. The grass is woven to create a unique pattern and then dried in the sun to harden for several days.
After drying, the bag is smoked over a coconut husk fire which strengthens the grass and gives its distinctive glossy, golden finish. The toasty aroma from being toasted over the coconuts is the signature sign of a genuine Bali bag. The aroma is not permanent and will fade over time.
Finally, the leather straps are attached, and Balinese batik fabric is sewn to the interior. Overall, it takes the craftsman one to three months to make each bag.
Through your purchase, we empower artisans to improve their lives. More importantly, we support the craft skill they practice and help them pass the skills to the next generation.
