Both of us have a deep connection to Indonesia and especially Bali since we spent a long time traveling there. Our beautiful Ata Bag’s are produced by a group of different artisans on Bali. The weaving process happens in Seraya Karang by a small Balinese family which takes up to three days per bag. To get the brown color of each bag, they put them in a big oven with coco fibre in the village Bungaya Karangasem. The cotton lining is made in Bebandem Karang and the final finishing in Denpasar.
