Indonesian Ate Bags
Ate (pronounced ah-tay) vine bags are purses made of vine fibers. Ate Vine Bags have been treated with smoke, which brings out the oils of the fibers to give the bags a glossy finish, as well as to repel insects.
Ate Vine Bags are made in Indonesia, and come in a variety of shapes & sizes:
Each bag securely closes using a tongue, or tab, inserted into a matching vine fiber loop or with a leather snap.

Marshall Island Kili Bags
Made popular by Jackie Onassis Kennedy, Kili bags are intricately woven with young coconut fibers into classic polynesian purses. Kili bags originated from the Kili Islands, and are now found throughout Polynesian islands. There are four sizes of Kili bags; extra-small, small, medium, and large. Each bag, hand-made in the Marshall Islands, features a lid that securely closes, and a tightly woven lauhala inside. The young coconut leaves used in our Kili bags are similar to the fibers used in Panama hats.
