Our Bosom Buddy Bags are all handwoven and have custom made adornments. These bags are the perfect purse for the summer with all your sundresses and shirts. Perfect for vacation or just to remind you that it is Island Time somewhere.
The bags are woven by hand of Ata grass on the Indonesian Island of Bali by Artists of the Tenganan region. This art form is handed down through the generations and is unique to Bali. The bags are not made in a factory, the artists work from home in their villages. Bags can take up to 4 weeks to complete. The warm golden honey color of the Ata grass develops naturally from slow smoking over a honey and coconut husk fire. The resultant aroma is your assurance of authenticity, we affectionately call them "bacon bags." If you wish to minimize the smoky scent, a product like Fabreeze and a few days in the open air will help dissipate the scent. Subtle differences in size, shape, weave, and finishes are part of the beauty of this handmade product.
Working from their Baltimore studio, the Bosom Buddy Bag design team hand adorn the Balinese ata grass bags with ribbons, jewelry, gold plated findings, natural sea shells and vintage elements. Subtle differences in adornments and ribbons are what makes each Bosom Buddy Bag extraordinary.
