Nature | Craftsmanship

 

There's brands that have men and women producing
breakthrough innovations using advanced hi-tech
scientific systems. And then there's us in Bali.
Where traditions stand in the face of the modern world,
we are content to produce with ancient artistic traditions,
lovingly crafting each and every piece, in small batches,
using only hands and the wonders of nature. 
We hope to connect you with our love stories and inspire
you to more deeply appreciate the undying beauty
of ancestral wisdom from seeds to new creations.

PLANT DYES FROM ABUNDANT PLANTS

.
Natural dyers make dyes in-house for guaranteed
top quality.
Color variations are unavoidable as they are
affected by the sun, rain, water mineral, soil fertility,
harvest time, and even artisans' energy.
Excess water becomes nutritious water for the garden.
No added preservatives so normal fading over time
mellows to a washed-out appeal.
