This year’s nominees’ bag is an elegant basket tote created from pandan leaves woven by highly skilled artisans in Bali. Each bag is created by hand using traditional weaving techniques passed down through generations. This Bottletop design reinterprets these techniques to create an elegant and versatile unisex tote bag that matches function with form; a practical day bag and sustainable style statement. Each bag is finished with the Bottletop signature logo fob. The bags have been produced in partnership with stelar; a social enterprise founded in Bali to bring much needed livelihoods to communities by re-interpreting age-old techniques.
Each design is positively impacting talented local artisans in Bali through sustainable design.
