Color: Cedar

Each carrier is thoughtfully processed at its own pace, creating an extraordinary piece that both preserves traditions and honours our surrounding environment. Equipped with a handtwined, adjustable shoulder strap for different possible lengths, 2cm in width. Due to the nature of its craftmanships, each carrier may vary in dimension (2-3cm) from one another.

Both Naturel and Cedar tones are handtwined and handknitted into shape after these thinly peeled bark are roasted and dried in the sun for several days, however Cedar has additionally undergone a dyeing process using a dyebath derived from the same bark to achieve its organic shade of cocoa brown.

Mini – 19 x 19cm / Midi – 23 x 23cm / Large – 30 x 40cm


Showcasing a beautiful union between mother nature and its beings, each carrier is completely handmade by the ancient Kanekes tribe from peeled bark of Artocarpus Elasticus or more commonly known in Indonesian as Terap tree.

Due to its robust characteristics and resistance to termites, the use of Terap bark as raw materials makes it strong, sturdy and versatile at the same time, shifting its shape accordingly and even better, completely biodegradable and compostable once it has exceeded its very long durability.

  • Cold handwash only
  • Line drying only in shade
