|An elegant tropical clutch made from Indonesian Bamboo, hand-woven in wicker style by artisans with traditional skills. The bag is covered in cloth, hand-painted by extremely skilled Balinese artists selectively commissioned by Rolf von Bueren. The corners have been decorated with Sterling Silver and the internal lining is covered in silk.
This fashionably stylish oriental clutch is functional and equally versatile – perfect for a weekend brunch, a summer night out, a beach escapade, 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.
The piece was finished in 6 weeks by over 6-7 craftsmen and designers involved at the various stages of wicker artistry, painting the motifs on cloth by hand and the final Sterling Silver work.
