For decades, Bali has been known for its fine and distinct craftsmanship. Combining skills and natural resources with designs and technology ensures Bali remains a favorite destination for handmade production in South East Asia.
The Estée Lauder Star edition features some of the craftsmanship that distinctively represents Bali.
The bamboo basket is hand woven by neighborhood housewives, inspired by offerings in a Hindu ceremony. The silver/brass ornaments show the transition from computer sketches of 12 ELC star products to laser cut/engrave models that transform traditional skills to a new level. Each ornament is cut and then finished manually.
The aluminum base is crafted manually with a hammer and chisel/nails, with the skill of a professional carver. The Ikat lining is hand woven by many women in East Bali which then carefully stitched to the basket. The handmade paper used for printing this card is crafted usually by women, using waste paper.
