This Beautiful basket bag is hand woven in the East of Bali, a small village know for fine basketry. Each bag is specially crafted from Ata Grass, which comes from a forest in eastern Bali. Ata grass material is moisture resistant and very durable.
The Ata Grass is split into four pieces and woven into many designs to create the bags. The unique skills and techniques for this art have been passed down and perfected over many generations of Balinese women. Each basket is individually handmade, lined with traditional batik print a leather strap and unique hand woven pattern.
After the bags are woven, they are dried under the sun for several days and then smoked over a coconut husk fire to obtain their golden brown color. Depending on the size, it can take up to a month to finish each bag. This process leaves behind a slight natural smoky scent that disappeared over time. If you prefer to remove the scent, this is easily done by spraying with Febreze and leaving the bag in the fresh air for a day or two.
Because each bag is handcrafted, no two bags are the same.
