A remote village on the island of Bali brings you these very special handmade handbags. They are made to specification out of a special reed that grows on the riverbanks called "ata". Each piece takes anywhere from several days to a month for the artisan to make. After each piece is woven, it is smoked to give it its rich honey color. The intricate designs and quality of the weave are reminiscent of the classic Nantucket basket. Because of the handmade nature of these pieces, there may be some variation in style and size, giving each piece its own unique character. These bags are timeless and truly functional works of art.
