  • Our crossbody bag takes inspiration from the classic messenger, promising practicality and versatility with its generous space. The sleek curves lend a sophisticated touch — making it a stylish companion for easy weekends and errands. Wear it on the shoulder or sling it cross body.

    Bethari bears motifs that are a unique combination of old world and new world. Modern flowers, very likely orchids float on a background of mega mendung, a classical batik motif dating back to the 1800s. Resembling clouds, they represent fertility and life. Put together, these two motifs may come to signify a rich and abundant life.


  • This hand drawn batik was acquired by our textile partner Tradisi Textiles on a field trip to Solo in Central Java. Made with a mixture of natural dyes - indigofera for blue and sogan for browns and reds. The effect of cracked wax on the white flowers in particular are truly one-of-a-kind. 

    - Batik is 100% cotton
    - Genuine calf leather in deep brown with maroon undertones
    - Gold plated hardware

  • Each bag comes packaged in our custom gift box and dust bag.

    - Magnetic closure
    - Measures 9” length, 12” height, 4” depth
    - One back pocket
    - Adjustable strap

    Slight differences in pattern placement are expected as textile is handmade. However this is what makes each piece unique.
