Agabhumi – The Best of Bali

Christmas may be over but the gifting season is far from over, especially if you are not happy with what you’ve received. While you’re hoping for something chic and special, you instead get stuck with items you’ll never use. In the days of Facebook and Twitter, I saw the words “Worst Christmas Gift” appear almost as much as I saw the words “Merry Christmas” – which leads to gift returning and getting things you really want. In regards to my taste, I love special one-of-a-kind items, unique things that I know I’m not likely to see several people wearing. Which is why I was drawn to Agabhumi. The owners of Agabhumi, Regina and Michael Kirschbaum, work with Balinese artisans to import eclectic clothing, accessories, home goods, jewelry and gifts like this absolutely gorgeous Ata Boat Handbag. Ata bags are hand woven bag made orchid vines collected from the hills in the ancient Balinese village of Tenganan. The ability of these amazing people to produce unique and exotic designs is world renowned and I’m so happy we get the chance to own a piece of it.

Ata Handbags are not the only chic bags available, for something a bit more formal, maybe this Hand Stitched Shell and Macrame Clutch with Black carved wooden handle will sate your accessory appetite.

But don’t stop there because handbags are not all that Agabhumi has to offer. Indulge in exotic jewelry, batik scarves, hand crafted leather belts and beautiful beaded shoes.

So if you are looking for special and enchanting, get to know the work of the Balinese people of Tenganan. Though it started with a flagship store in Stamford CT, Agabhumi now has locations in Barbados, Westport CT and Santa Monica CA and of course, an online store at
