Our Taman Ayun handbag has a deep black color with brown or black leather straps to match. This handbag is the traditional design that is most popular in Bali. The leather button clasp secures the bag closed, and when opened the lid opens as far as the material will let it which is about a 45 degree angle.
The intricate textile on the inside of the bag is hand woven and chosen by the Balinese families that we work with who hand make the bags just for you. As a result each bag is unique in its design of the fabric which lines the inside of the bag. The bags are sturdy, lightweight and have a solid form to their appearance and are ready to be taken on any adventure!
Rattan is a strong and pliable natural material which comes from the tropical plant Calamus Rotang which grows in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. The rattan stems of this plant are as long as 300 meters and are used in many cultures to make furniture and other wickerwork items.
Rattan is harvested by removing the bark of the Calamus Rotang plant and peeling off the rattan stems which are then dried, formed into any shape, and then dyed to their desired color.
Our Rattan handbags are handmade on The Island of Bali in Indonesia with natural materials sourced on the island, namely rattan, organic cotton, and genuine cow leather. We work directly with several Balinese families who create these amazing bags for you.
The Balinese work tirelessly to perfect each bag. They love sharing their culture with the international community through their handmade products.
When you purchase a handbag, you make a difference by helping to support the local families who we work with.
