These beautiful bag are hand woven in the East of Bali , a small village known for fine basketry . we work so closely with beautiful artisans to create each design . The craftsmanship has been passed down through many generations and is truly inspiring .
The material is called Ata or Ati and is a reed that grown in Bali . the Ata grass is delivered from different areas of Bali and other islands .the grass can be seen on the sides of the road drying in the sun . Once dries the village people hand weave each bag into our beautiful designed bags .
Once the bag is completed they are boiled in rain water for one day than left in the sun to dry for another day .
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 . This process makes the material strong and durable
The final stage of the production is to add the leather straps and different closures . This process takes approxamantly I week to make one bag
After the artisans have finished hand-making your bag , it is shipped from the village to our Fulfillment Warehouse in China where the Company Team that ship our product to worldwide accepts engraves custom bag , packages them up, and ships them out!
Three in five Avesii artisan work from home in the company of family and freind . this allows them to take part in every aspect of daily village life -especially important since 75% of them are women , and many have young children
We hope that these stories help you to have an appreciation and understanding of who's and what's behind your Avesii bags. We sourced these bags for you to be stylish but most importantly to be confident in who you are, your personal and true style and to be the confident in who you were created to be.
