with a motif of a roaring Tiger in its natural preying landscape of lush forests, by extremely skilled artisans with oriental traditional skills. A tsavorite in the eye of the tiger, brings the artwork to life.
This fashionably stylish oriental clutch is functional and equally versatile – perfect for a weekend brunch, a summer night out, a beach escapade and an evening cocktail, all effortlessly elevating a casual yet graceful vibe.
As a process, once the bamboo has been harvested, it is shredded into bamboo fiber strands, before being woven together into various forms. Being a natural material, the organic structure is extremely durable. The technique of weaving the bamboo fibers, ‘wicker’, is a style of weave commonly used for Asian household utility items like baskets and furniture. While it remains popular in antique and vintage designs, it also has modern applications, which Lotus Arts de Vivre pursued in the transformation of this clutch.
Symbolically, Tigers are courageous and active people who love a good challenge and adventure in life. In Chinese culture, tigers are seen as the guardian of children. Infants and babies wear shoes and hats with tiger designs to protect against evil spirits.
The piece was collectively finished in 1.5 months by over 8 craftsmen and designers involved at the various stages.
