The Bali rattan bags & housewares series are handwoven from Ata grass, also known as "ketak". It's a native reed vine mainly found in Bali Province Indonesia.
Ata reed is one of the finest and toughest wild vines in the world, which makes the handwoven Ata rattan bag strong and durable.
Also, all clips and straps of the bags we used are made of real leather. The button clips are well woven to the body of the bag, which makes it strong and firm, not easy to get detached.
All the products from Ganapati Crafts Co. is 100% handmade. Therefore, the appearance and the size may vary slightly. Furthermore, the color of the inside lining may differ.
Dampen a soft, clean cloth with cool water and spot clean.
Balinese artisans use their traditional technique to weave Ata reed vines into beautifully structured rattan items. Read more about how a Bali rattan bag is made.
After finishing weaving, the rattan bags or housewares are smoked over coconut husks in the traditional oven around 24 to 48 hours for distinct caramel coloration and as part of the drying process, which leaves the bag with a slight natural scent that disappears over time.
The bags are purchased directly from the weavers and sell directly to you. By doing so, we are able to offer you the finest bags at an affordable price.
Furthermore, we make sure all weavers are fairly compensated which allows them to keep on following their passions while providing for their families!
We thank you for supporting and empowering the local Indonesian artisans by carrying this beautiful bag.
