How Bali baskets are made:

Ata straw comes from the branches of Ata trees native to Kalimantan and Sulawesi. The thinnest branches, around a meter long, are then sailed to the Bali Ata craftsmen who:

Split the finest pieces suitable for weaving into four or five pieces
Soak the pieces in Balinese stream waters for up to five days to be pliable for shaping
Weave the shaped pieces into a fine art product such as a baskets, boxes, bowls, placemats…
Dry the Bali baskets in the tropical sun for several days
Smoke the Bali baskets over burning coconut fiber for up to three days
Leave some the Bali baskets in their natural patina shades or paint in a root based natural black colour

The end result

The origin of Bali baskets

Bali baskets are made by the Bali Aga tribe who are the aboriginals of Bali. Living in the remote north east they remained untouched by the conflicts of other tribes migrating to the island throughout history. Still living in relative isolation, the Aga continue the cultural practices of their ancestors including the weaving of Ikat and Ata. Some Ata products are made in Lombok and elsewhere in the archipelago, but the most intricate and finest Ata products are known to be made from the Bali Aga tribe.
