Ate Grass Batik Napkin Rings set of Six
Beautiful napkin rings from Indonesia
In an effort to rise above economic hardship and provide a better standard of living for their families, Sasak Lombok Craft is a group of over 100 women from Indonesia who create beautiful handicrafts. They make this set of six napkin rings by hand, wrapping cotton and weaving ate grass fibers in the traditional Lombok style around bamboo stalks. Using the batik method, they apply a wax resist to the cotton before submerging it in vats of dye to achieve its beautiful floral motifs.
