Bali is the word hand-painted in the beautiful Balinese alphabet script, Aksara Bali, on this coconut shell tile designed for vacation scrapbooks and off-the-page projects.

The tile could also be woven into a macrame bracelet, or stitched onto a tropical tote bag. One of my customers purchased a large quantity to stitch to the gift bags for guests at her Bali wedding. Add a magnet or pin back to the ones you don't use in your main project.

Crafted exclusively for Indounik in Bali, these sturdy embellishments can be attached with thread or artistic wire, or you can alter their look by adding micro eyelets. Use a piercing tool to position the eyelets and then press them into position.

The pieces are of variable thickness, between 2mm and 3mm. If you want them for scrapbooking, please put a note in the message to seller at checkout and I'll dispatch the thinnest ones I can for you.

AT A GLANCE:
Size: Approx 25mm (1 inch)(L) x 18mm (W)
Thickness: Approx 2mm-3mm, variable
Pieces per pack: 6
Material: Coconut wood/shell, oil paint
Colour: White (putih) over brown (coklat)
Script: Aksara Bali - the Balinese alphabet
Shipping: This item will ship from Bali via Pos Indonesia registered mail with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly have to sign for it upon delivery.
Extra info: The wood used to create this product is from the shell of the coconut. The trees take about 25 to 30 years to mature and produce viable wood but the fruit of the tree - the humble coconut - takes only six months so this is a sustainable product. While I'm told the paint is oil-based, I have not been able to determine if there is any lead content. Either way, these tiles are not suitable for small children.

BACK STORY
The beautiful Balinese alphabet, known as Aksara Bali, Carakan descended from the old Javanese Kawi script which in turn derived from the Brahmi script of ancient India.

It's still in use today for writing Bahasa Bali – the language of Bali - but appears mostly in religious texts. Aside from priests, few Balinese can read the script these days as their language is now mostly written in Latin alphabet.

Many of the old people speak only Basa Bali but most of the island's 4.2 million inhabitants also speak Bahasa Indonesia, their nation's official language.
