Hand crafted by Balinese women working from their homes in the Tenganan Village in Eastern Bali, this Teardrop Ata Grass Crossbody Bag is a work of art. The women are master weavers with skills that have been passed down and perfected over many generations. 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.
