Reinterpreting heritage skills and bringing the exceptional talents and stories of our artisans and their skills to the forefront through digital technology.
This traditional Balinese technique has been used for centuries to weave utilitarian objects such as mats and prayer baskets in locally grown natural grasses.
We have up-skilled several communities of artisans to work this weave in locally sourced, super soft lamb's leather that is hand cut and then woven into sumptuous woven panels. They are then constructed into our range of leather wallets & purses and leather tote bags.

This intricate technique requires high level skills to weave 6 layers of hand cut leather into sumptuous woven panels that are then constructed and assembled to create our range of leather wallets & purses and drum bags
ATTA GRASS WEAVING
Our atta basket bags are intricately handcrafted with organic atta grass, which is grown on the land belonging to our artisans, before being harvested by them and their families.
The materials are naturally dried in the sun, which makes our vegan atta bags robust, hardwearing and showerproof.
Bamboo is indigenous to Indonesia and has been used for centuries to weave daily utilitarian objects such as baskets and mats.
It grows easily and quickly, regenerates itself and is highly durable. The bamboo we use is grown organically and harvested by our artisan communities, then dried naturally in the sun before it is ‘split’ into different thicknesses and woven into panels.
We have up-skilled several communities of artisans tore-work traditional bamboo weaving techniques to create our unique range of vegan bamboo bags. These bags are flexible and very resilient, lasting for many years to come.
SUPPORTING TRADITIONAL ARTISAN COMMUNITIES
Working directly with our team of local artisans in Bali, we create unique, hand-crafted leather goods with history and meaning. By bringing a contemporary relevance to traditional skills, we are able to sustain this expertise whilst re-generating the communities that rely upon them.
OUR UNIQUE CODE SYSTEM
We believe every beautifully handcrafted item has an equally fine story behind it, which is why the unique code, on the disc attached to your STELAR bag or wallet, allows you to verify its origin and attributes. We forge connections between our artisans, the communities we are regenerating, and you.
