Nature has never stopped inspiring us, especially the sea and its fascinating creatures.
Influenced by the beautiful shapes of shells we found in Balinese exotic beaches, we created our Shell Bag from dried Water Hyacinth leaves we harvested from riverbanks on the island of Java.
Water Hyacinth leaves are soft and very comfortable to hold and the look is completed with a satin inner lining.
We work closely with artisan communities in Central Java to collect the Water Hyacinth leaves. Water Hyacinths are a type of riverbank weed that grow very quickly and often cause flooding. To prevent floods, these plants used to be harvested and burned, which caused massive air pollution. We are grateful that our artisan communities can work together to harvest these leaves and turn them into beautiful bags.
