Saffron & Poe : Tenganan Oval Crossbody

The Oval Tenganan Basket Crossbody bag is the perfect balance of casual and chic. It features a simple sophisticated weave with a charming woven bow closure. Small and structured, it's the perfect piece for those who like to travel light and do it with style!  This basket bag is just the right size to hold your daily necessities- phone, wallet, keys, and a lip gloss or two. Slip the leather crossbody strap over your shoulder and free up your hands to grab a coffee, browse your favorite outdoor market, or stroll hand in hand on date night. 

This bag is handwoven in the village of Tenganan, Bali using natural Ata reed and leather. Then skilled artisans intricately weave the reed strands into baskets, working on one basket for up to a month. Once fully woven, the baskets are boiled and left in the sun to dry for a week. Finally, to strengthen the weave, condition the fibers, and leave a natural finish, baskets are smoked over coconut shell clippings. A true dedication to craft to make these gorgeous bags.
