Beautifully Handwoven Vintage Backpack Borneo Tote Bag
Size approximately 30cm Height and 17cm Diameter
This vintage backpack is beautifully handwoven in Borneo by Indonesian local artisans, made with natural soft rattan straw, which is also called " Anjat ". Anjat is a traditional craft which was first introduced by the Dayak Tribe in Kalimantan/ Borneo island.`
This material is pure bamboo that makes the bag durable and strong for daily use.
Weave could be random due to handcrafted goods.
Like all my rattan bags this is also bamboo bag is also handmade by our Balinese artisans with genuine leather strap and traditional Batik prints lining with leather clip closure. The material is pure Ata reed, making the material strong and durable. The pieces are all " smoked "over coconut husks as part of the drying process, which adds beautiful patina and leaves the bag with a slight natural scent that disappears over time.
All of our bags are handmade therefore some of our bags may have slight variations in design, size, Please Note: color and hardware/fastenings. This is a natural occurrence in handcrafted goods and one of the many reasons we love it! Due to the handcrafted nature, no two designs will be exactly alike giving you a lasting one-of-a-kind product to treasure for years to come.
There is a huge misconception about the quality of these straw bags, that two rattan bags are same in quality. Once you start browsing for these wicker bags, you will find a lot of these shoulder bags available on Amazon, aliexpress and many other websites. Most of those bags are made in Vietnam or China, the Ata, straw or rattan is fake and bad quality, the lining inside is also not great quality. Real rattan bags are only made in Bali and we work with direct artists.
