Artisan: Sourcing Indonesia
Sourcing Indonesia works collaboratively with skilled artisans from remote villages who have no access to international markets, enabling a viable international market where their goods can be sold at competitive prices. Incorporating ethical practices such as sustainable-materials use and a no-child/forced labor policy allows the company to reach a diverse population of artisans -- while also helping small villages preserve traditional crafts and cultural identity.
Artisan Nengah Sudarsana
After working in a tourist shop and learning various ropes of the handicrafts trade, Nengah started his own business at the age of 18. Using his passion for nature and wildlife as inspiration, Nengah began creating treasures that appealed to both tourists and foreign markets. Now successful enough to employ several other artisans, Nengah and his team produce animal and wildlife-centered handicrafts, with future plans for a nature-inspired line of silver jewelry.
Artisan Eddy Santana
Born in Java, Indonesia, professionally-trained designer Eddy Santana moved to Bali in 1995 to pursue the many artistic opportunities available on the island. He soon found employment with a jewelry design company, where he was able to both hone his skills as a designer and add his own flair to designs. His creative pursuits led him to start a gallery and jewelry studio with a friend in Ubud, a company he has co-owned and co-operated for the last seven years. In addition to being a talented designer, Eddy is an avid electric guitar player, and can often be found practicing or performing with his band at venues throughout Bali.
Artisan Komang Sulaksana
In 1999, Komang Sulaksana and his wife took the money they had saved from working at various handicraft businesses over the years and started their own family business in Kandari. Komang's works include beautifully designed notebooks and albums made of recycled paper decorated with dried leaves, fruit, and twigs from the Sulaksanas' own garden. Although their business is small, they have been able to save enough to build a modest house with attached workshop and a family temple. They currently employ seven people and contract with six others.
Artisan Wayan Panca
Born in Bali, Wayan Panca, began his career as a wood sculptor in 1987. He submitted early sculptures to local art shops, and in 1989 had his big professional break when an American buyer began ordering his products. Encouraged after securing these orders, Wayan began his own business, that continues to grow to this day, and stays busy collaborating with agents and trading companies, and expanding internationally.
