by Posey is inspired by the search for the unusual and uncommon (yet super cute) handcrafted accessories. We are forever sourcing products that are infused with the rich history of a culture's past through the hands of the artisan who created them. Each purchase helps to ensure that the traditional techniques and skills of the artisanal community are not lost to future generations.
Our basket bags are handmade by artisans in Lombok. Each basket is handwoven using ata grass and then slowly smoked over a honey and coconut husk fire, adding patina and strength. This process also results in the bags having a slightly smoked aroma to them (guaranteeing authenticity), nothing a few days in the open air won’t fix. The incredible thing about these woven bags is the skill that is required to complete each piece has been passed down through generations of artisans.
