The Bali Bag Collection features handmade bags crafted by local artisans in Bali. Our flagship bags are our Ata Bags, handwoven from Bali's native ata grass that grows wild on the island. Each bag takes about one MONTH to make. They are first handwoven in the mountains of East Bali which takes about one week. Then they're dried out in the sun for several days, before being toasted over coconuts to give them their golden color. Finally, each bag is lined with a piece of traditional Batik fabric and finished off with a genuine leather buckle and strap. WIth every purchase from Nomad Nextdoor, you are supporting local artisans and their families.
