Natural fiber and cotton clutch, 'Truntum Dreams' (Indonesia)

As early as the 14th century, religious texts and manuscripts in Indonesia were written on the leaves of the lontar palm, and the texts form an important and valuable part of the region's culture and history. Balinese artisan Farica pays homage to these historical artifacts with this clutch bag. Lontar leaves are cut and are woven and trimmed with beautiful, maize-yellow 100% cotton fabric. The white motifs are styled after the traditional Javanese truntum batik in maize-yellow 100% cotton fabric. The white motifs are styled after the traditional Javanese truntum batik in a Javanese pattern that representing love, growth and bonding. The clutch is lined in solid grey and closes securely with a magnetic flap. read more
