about the Bags
Each Bosom Buddy Bag is handcrafted one at a time.
The bags are woven by Master weavers of the Tenganan region, using Ata grass, a vine indigenous to the foothills of volcanoes on the Indonesian Island of Bali. This art form is handed down through the generations and is unique to Indonesia. 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 fire of coconut husks soaked in honey . 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 Febreze 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,tassels and vintage elements. Subtle differences in adornments and ribbons are what makes each Bosom Buddy Bag extraordinary.
