Jogjakarta 2013 : AS Java Leather & Craft - May 2013
Chairs carved from volcanic rock with Javanese figurines.
Another place we visited during the third day of our Jogjakarta tour (... see Jogjakarta 2013 : Day 3 - A Day Of Palaces) was a leather shop, the AS Leather & Craft. Interesting, as the previous day we had visited another craft shop  i.e. the Borobudur Silver shop (... see blog).

This place is a showroom/shop that sells leather accessories and also handicraft.


The shop comes in three section, a main building with two floors and a smaller annex which sells only handicraft.
The main building has a wide range of leather goods and some handicraft.

Including colorful ladies' handbags.

Earth toned handbags.

Checkered design handbags.

Leather Business Bags.

Leather Jackets & Vests.

Mens' Shoes, Sandals & Ladies' Sandals.

I was more interested in the artwork, so I left my fellow tourists to do their leather shopping, and loitered around admiring the art.


Even before one enters the main building, one can feel that this place has good artwork; for at the entrance porch itself are displayed volcanic carvings. Such as this one of an old Javanese village couple, meticulously crafted so that their sarong patterns and their facial features are well detailed.
