RATTAN BAGS: THE PROCESS
Did you know our rattan/ata bags come from eastern Bali, where they have been handcrafted by Balinese women for generations? The process includes weaving wet ata grass into bag designs and drying them under the sun. Once ready, they are smoked over the coconut husk fire to develop beautiful shade of golden brown. As a result, the bags come with a lovely smoky scent which disappears after airing them.
These bags are moisture resistant, very durable and will last years to come. And because of the handmade nature, each bag is unique and one of a kind.
