This bohemian square straw bag is one of our most unique and popular designs. Its geometric shape and size make it both edgy and practical, allowing you to fit all the essentials including your phone, sunglasses, keys, most wallets, and other little basics like chapstick and headphones.
The Gili is a medium sized, square shaped, hard case shoulder bag handwoven from Ata Grass. Each bag is lined in a unique piece of batik fabric.

Did you know it takes ONE MONTH to make ONE BALI BAG?! That's because each of our Bali Bags is handcrafted from start to finish by local artisans in Bali. We work directly with a small family who has been hand-making them for generations. Every bag purchased directly supports them and their families!

◖Made from Ata grass- a vine native to the volcanic foothills on the island of Bali.
◖First, the stems are braided to create unique patterns, then dried in the sun for several days.
◖After drying, they're toasted over coconuts, which strengthens the rattan and gives them their beautiful golden color.
◖Finally, the leather strap and buckle are attached, and traditional Balinese Batik fabric is sewn to the interior.

◖Unlike other mass-produced, rattan-style bags, we guarantee that ours are 100% Authentic, Handcrafted Bali Bags.
◖The temporary TOASTY AROMA (from being toasted over the coconuts) is the signature sign of a GENUINE BALI BAG. While many customers love the unique smell and the story behind it, others find it intense. But don't worry! In either case, the aroma is not permanent and will fade over time.
◖Due to being handmade, no two bags are identical. There can be slight differences in the size and coloring of each bag.
