We are beyond delighted to introduce you all to Battie Page, the red eye bat! A Halloween flavoured wicker bat clutch suitable for spooky season or all year round, if that's your persuasion!

Battie the wicker Bat Bag is our latest bespoke design, designed by Jasmine in Melbourne, and handmade using traditional weaving techniques by our artisans in the Philippines - Battie's primary materials are sustainably farmed and harvested rattan, leather, and linen for the lining. 

Our handbags are designed in Australia and lovingly hand crafted by our weavers in the Philippines from natural materials. As such, each and every beautiful bat shaped wicker purse will have minor differences, whether it's in the weave of the wicker, leather work, or other finishings. These are a unique signature of expert craftsmanship.

Need protection for your friend in case of unexpected rain? Just want a cute tote that's designed to fit perfectly in your wicker friend? Why not order our three-pack of Wicker Darling reusable totes! Our reusable shopping totes are in stock and will ship out - free of charge!

    Product Details

    Bettie Page the bat shaped purse is 17.5 inches wing tip to wing tip and 11 inches top to bottom. The body space available for storing contents is approximately 7 inches wide by 8.5 inches tall and 5 inches deep.

    Bettie Page the bat purse has a leather shoulder strap that is 48 inches long. This shoulder strap can be completely removed and replaced with a strap of your choice.

    Bettie Page the bat purse features an interior lining of loose linen to take advantage of the internal shape of the bag - large enough to fit your wallet, a clutch of keys, a very large phone, those three red lipsticks you've always got in your handbag, and that random packet of doodads you know will come in handy one day!

    This bat wing purse is more clutch sized than standard handbag sized: he'll fit a standard smart phone, credit cards, keys, and lippie. She's a bit of a diva and is unlikely to accept your chunky purse/wallet!

    Bettie Page the bat purse will arrive with a collector card and dust bag to keep him snug during his hours of slumber.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    For more detailed information, please view our detailed FAQs page or contact us directly with your question.

    Where are your bags made, and what from?

    They're handmade by our family-owned ateliers in the Philippines! Our wicker bags are made from sustainable rattan (wicker refers to the method of woven construction, rattan is the material). Rattan is a non-timber and naturally renewable palm which can be sustainably harvested, and as such provides an environmentally friendly alternative to forest logging. Our rattan is harvested by hand, from local farmers and co-ops - minimising carbon footprint while supporting local growers. The cultivation, harvest and use of rattan is invaluable to livelihoods throughout Asia, and fundamental to traditional Filipino craftsmanship.

    Bag linings are either linen (sourced from flax), or cotton (sourced from ... cotton).

    Can you explain how your products are ethically produced?

    Wicker Darling bags are woven from sustainably, ethically harvested rattan. Our ateliers source rattan from local co-ops and farms to support their communities and to minimise the distance the materials travel. Rattan is sustainably grown, harvested by hand, and by-products are composted. 

    Bags are handmade by traditional artisans, providing employment with a focus on marginalised communities and nurturing traditional skills and handicrafts, and fostering micro-businesses and individual artisans. 

    The overall aim is to reduce our environmental footprint as much as possible, and to provide meaningful, fairly paid employment opportunities to our Filipino artisans. 

    What are material substitutions?

    Due to ongoing material shortages and supply delays, our ateliers may occasionally need to substitute materials during production, leading to differences between the sample and finished bags. Usually these will be minor, such as substitutions to hardware on bags. Occasionally it may be more significant, such as a different colour of leather for the straps. Where we feel a substitution is significant (such as different colour leather), we will contact our customers to confirm if they are happy to go ahead or would prefer to cancel their order. 

    Is the uneven dye or fraying on my bag a fault?

    Our items are handcrafted from natural materials by our ateliers in the Philippines. As such, each and every bag will have minor differences, whether it's in the wicker, leather work, placement of finishings such as ears, eyes and tails, or in the dye work of the raffia.

    These are not faults, but rather a signature of hand craftsmanship from natural materials, and we consider these characteristics to be what makes each of our small batch items a unique and limited edition piece of art. 

    If your bag arrives with series damage, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team.

    Can I request a customisation to my bag?

    No, we are unable to offer custom changes to our bags, no matter how large or small. It creates a logistical nightmare along the entire line, from us having to keep track of who has ordered which change, to the production manager, atelier, workers etc who have to track that one bag different from the rest. We respectfully ask that you don't request customisations to your individual bag, as the answer will always be a hard no.
