Rattan Purses

Made by Indigenous Dayak artisans in East Kalimantan Borneo. A renewed interest in Dyak weaving is providing a sustainable livelihood for these artisans while reviving centuries old weaving traditions, which were starting to disappear. 

Made from split Rattan that is grown in sustainable farms in watershed areas, these stylish bags feature high quality leather trim and hand batik 100% Cotton lining. The perfect bag and conversation piece for stylish and socially conscious women. 

Dayak weaving is fine, tight and even, showing mastery of the craft. Two-tone patterns on some tell mystical tales and age old stories, preserving aspects of Dayak cultural heritage.
