Balifornia - this season's escape of choice
This season, our capsule basket bag collection embodies the laid-back spirit of ‘Balifornia’.
Feeling nostalgic for our favourite summer experiences - the grace and ease of our outdoor lifestyle in Bali, open road trips, surf adventures along palm fringed beaches in the Big Sur and hedonistic days on secluded beaches in Ibiza, ‘Balifornia’ is our summer 2021 escape of choice.
Our collection of vegan basket bags draws inspiration from heady holidays of the past, and the free-loving, bohemian playground of Brigitte Bardot in the French Riviera in the ‘70s, while staying true to their understated Balinese charm - relaxed, effortless and chic.
Kick back and relax to STELAR’s world of insouciance with our summer playlist, reminiscent of long hot days in the sunshine, breathing in fresh ocean air, feeling the sand between our toes, dining alfresco and dancing under the stars.
These influences, eras and places are close to STELAR’s heart and reflect our love of timeless and effortless style combined with our spirit of playfulness and joie de vivre.
Capturing the Balinese spirit of grace and ease, our new collection of summer bags and accessories look just as great under a parasol on a Californian beach, as they do out and about exploring the cobbled streets of Ibiza's old town.
Whether this evokes a sense of nostalgia or the excitement of exploring somewhere unfamiliar, these magical experiences have inspired this seasons laid-back and carefree styles.
With most of us anticipating some form of escapism this summer, whether this means a much needed and well deserved holiday, a last-minute weekend getaway, or simply a gathering in our local park with family and friends, our versatile range of basket bags and jacquard or raffia belts, have got you covered.
NATURAL VEGAN MATERIALS
Focusing on organic and locally-grown atta grass and bamboo, each of our basket bags is intricately handwoven by our wonderful artisan communities in Bali and trimmed with colourful woven jacquard that reimagines the traditional form of Balinese ikat weaving, or playful raffia trims in colourful and contemporary patterns.
Embracing locally sourced raw materials and age-old forms of craftsmanship that have been passed down for generations, we have created a variety of styles this season that celebrate a range of techniques and materials.
Introducing new styles and colourways to our best selling Mentawai range, our new bamboo tote bags are perfect for all your needs, both at home and away. Using this naturally regenerative and organically grown material, they are handwoven by skilled artisans in Lombok using a two-layer weaving technique that optimises the supple inner layer and the durable outer layer of the bamboo stalk. This makes our bamboo basket bags flexible, lightweight, and robust - ideal for traveling and as an everyday summer staple.
Featuring 3 sizes in a variety of colour ways, our roomy Mentawai totes are perfect for essential trips to the local market, sightseeing and spending long heady days at the beach.
This indigenous organic grass is a type of vine that is native to East Bali, grown on the land of our artisans, before being expertly harvested by them and their families, and intricately handwoven into our unique bags.
This season, our atta and bamboo basket bags encapsulate our desire for freedom and outdoor get togethers with friends and loved ones, working seamlessly from day to night.
Choose our Manado hand-held bag when dining out, our Laora crossbody bucket bag for long balmy evenings or our large Poso Shopper for adventures to the local market or boulangerie.
All that’s missing now is a one way ticket.
