Did You know?
Handwoven and hand-beaded baskets have a long-lasting tradition in Bali. Locals use baskets for daily ceremonies, to store and carry offerings to the house temple. But on special days they need to go to the village temple or to a secret place and they want to present the offerings in their best light.
This tradition has been going on for centuries so hundreds of years ago they already started making bamboo baskets which they decorated for ceremonial use, to present the offerings to their gods.
Until today only Balinese Hindu Craftsmen are allowed to make these baskets so they can be taken into a temple, this way still today the baskets carry a secret massage from a forgotten time. A time when all important things and objects carried a sacred value and were stored in a special place in each house or temple.
