Beautifully handmade Bali boxes are
used to carry offerings to the Temples and Ceremonies here in Bali,
But today they are now often used in a variety of ways as a stylish addition to any home as they make a great storage solution or alternative.
They come in so many different colours sizes and variations of design or decoration, that there is sure to be some thing suitable for everyone’s taste.
The selection handmade boxes we show here you here are all made here in Bali and the surrounding islands. Most are hand painted with water based colours, decorated by brush or often batik tools are used for the small dotted designs. These can then be finally lacquered when finished to add a luster or sheen or just as final added protection.
Bali Boxes can be made of various natural materials such as,
Pandan, the young leaves from the Pandanus trees, Vetiver roots, palm leaf, palm leaf ribs, seagrass,mendong, Rattan, Rattan Skin, Rice plant and Water hyacinth In most cases the leave or stalks are dried finely sliced or shredded before weaving.
Some are also made Teak, Bamboo and other local woods
These are contempory offering boxes, also handmade here in Bali, made from high grade aluminum.
The Bali makers use a bright shiny heavy weight aluminum foil, which is then embossed or stamped in many designs to make these very attractive offering boxes. They would normally be used as a more permanent alternative to place their daily offerings. This has now been developed as a craft to also include the production of wastebaskets, and larger hampers or simply for many of decorative items we’ve shown here.
If you have an idea for something made in this way we are sure a sample can be made for you, please just ask.
