The Balinese practice Balinese Hinduism – a mixing of Buddhism, Hinduism and Animism. They believe that the spirit of the gods is present in all things, from everyday objects to nature. Good spirits dwell in the mountains, while sea spirits are demons and ogres. In the daily Balinese ceremonies and rituals, offerings are carried on the head in hand painted/hand woven rice baskets, “keben.”
A tiffin is a lunch box. Each stacking compartment has a lid to keep the freshness in and to avoid spillage. Across the subcontinent home cooked meals are carried to the workplace in tiffins. Our tiffins are made of stainless steel. They are hand painted and are food safe. Great for separating wet from dry ingredients.
These decorative cups and mugs make aye catching accent pieces on a desk, a shelf, and are great on patio, poolside and jazz up picnics. #atthecaravan #handpainted #unusualgift #indiacraft
These hand stitched cotton reversible bags are made from vintage Kantha fabric – recycled saris that are joined together by a running stitch known as kantha.
Every bag is unique. They are hand-stitched, come in different patterns and colors. The beauty of the object is in its singularity and intrinsic irregularities. #kanthastitching #kanthabag #handmade #indiantextiles #atthecaravan
Bali, Land of the Gods! Top left, Disco Ganesha (the Hindu Superhero, remover of Obstacles),
Garuda (top right) was Lord Vishnu’s mount and was so big that when he flew he blocked the sun!
The Raven totem, also created in Bali (for outsourcing Inuits)- Native holy men understood that what the physical eye sees, is not always the truth, and called upon the raven for clarity.
Barong with his bulging eyes and sharp canines is a lion-like mythological creature, king of the spirits and champion of good.
