Ibu Putu – Hand waving
Ibu Putu comes from Tengangan village from East Bali. There is a huge community of handwoven ata bags and crafts as the jungle around them provides enough ata grass weed. She makes bags for seven years after her neighbor taught her. It is more of a community tradition rather than individual person working on it.
Few years ago she made our first design for us and also Bali common bags and baskets from ata and rattan.
Her passion is cooking and she makes amazing rice cakes with brown sugar. She would like to open warung (local restaurant) later if she gets lucky and will have enough money.
