Ata Grass Saddle Crossbody Bag
Hand crafted by Balinese women working from their homes in the Tenganan Village in Eastern Bali, this Saddle/Ata Grass Crossbody Bag is a work of art. It's a practical choice for everyday use, medium sized, hard case rounded bag with a handwoven cross design and adjustable strap. Big enough to fit the essentials, including the iPhone plus.
The women are master weavers with skills that have been passed down and perfected over many generations. Did you know it takes ONE MONTH to make one Rattan bag? That's because each of our Bali Bags is handcrafted from start to finish by artisans in Bali. After the bags are woven, they are dried under the sun for several days, then hung over a fire, the smoke and heat from the fire gives them their golden color and cures them and makes them hard and durable, ensuring that the bags will last a lifetime.
