About the bag
This unique looking basket backpack "Kura Kura" (which in Indonesian means 'turtle') combines traditional techniques and new fashion to complement your look. This bag is large enough to fit your phone, wallet, sunglasses and even a book in it. It is light and convenient, hence perfect for getaways, sunset strolls or city tours.
How is it made?
It starts with the selection of the right branches and leaves. After these natural materials have been properly prepared, they are handwoven into the requested shape. Once the bags have been woven and sun-dried, they are put into a special oven and smoked over coconut husks to receive their distinctive colour.
This explains the smoky smell that some bags might still have, however, this specific scent fades over time.
Finally, a unique Batik lining is sewn into the bag.
SAYA supports Indonesian Artisans
Each bag is carefully hand-crafted by talented artisans, who are adequately rewarded for their incredible work.
Saya is proud to collaborate with local communities and let themselves be inspired by fascinating cultures while creating unique accessories for the wild-hearted away from mass-production and the mainstream.
