Welcome to our new webshop!
Behind our stylish and sustainable creations
are love stories of giving.
Who We Are
We are Ubud Bali's coolest concept shop that celebrates
the coexistence of Design x Nature x Community.
Every piece in our simple, functional, and artistic collections
is meant to reinvigorate you and stand the test of time
so you could make it part of your everyday life or share.
We transform culture and heritage as wearable art
in our effort to preserve cultural sustainability.
Every creation is kind to our health and the earth
as it's made with natural fabrics and plant dyes or eco dyes
that are free from harmful chemicals, and will return
safely back into the water and earth.
Every purchase keeps communities stronger as we
work only with artisans who craft our pieces
slowly by hand using indigenous and long-lasting craftsmanship.
Together we preserve traditions and conserve nature.
Every customer becomes a donor as we share with the
community 50% of our net proceeds.
Together we help underprivileged children get the education
they deserve at the eco-school we support in Bali.
One day we believe that one of these children will
change the community - or the world.
x Love Stories of Giving
Made consciously so you shop consciously.
Every piece tells love stories of giving.
You and us become a giving community that’s igniting
the love and the change we want to see in the world.
Humans from over 80 countries, from
Iceland to Cuba, Ethiopia, and down to New Zealand
- of all races, sizes, gender, personalities, income -
have given us the privilege to serve and exchange life stories
in our tiny shop since we opened in July 2017 in Ubud, Bali.
Teachers volunteered in the schools and changed lives.
Artists created art for the shop to join our causes.
Can't believe! We’re so grateful.

feel loving, free, confident, groovy, edgy, sexy

Agnes, a local teacher, founded PAUD Cemara Kasih in
2010 with nothing more than her savings plus donations
and her motherly love. Since 2016, we've been supporting
the green expansion and international exposure of Agnes'
school so she can accomplish her mission to educate
preschoolers from families in extreme poverty and expand a
green school that will inspire other preschools to go green.
Today Agnes is multi-awarded:
one of 12 "Changemaker of Indonesia" in 2018, and
one of 15 Reggio Emilia early education trainer in
Indonesia after her sponsored training in Italy in 2019.
Learn more about our school mission in the blog.
For every Hannah Tree Planting shirt sold,
we plant three trees on your behalf.
Our $4 USD donation from every sale can buy three trees.
We started this journey in January 2020 and by March
100 trees were planted in a protected jungle in Bali
in collaboration with our partner Pagi Motley.
In 12 months we'd love to plant 1000 from 85 shirts sold.
We help not only preserve our ecosystem but also offset
the carbon emissions involved in the order deliveries.
Tri Hita Karana
In Bali, you devote to the life philosophy of “Tri Hita Karana”
(Three Causes of Well-being: God, Nature, Community)
to achieve wellness and success in life.
This guides the way we work with our partners
where decisions and actions are harmonized
to honor nature, respect artisans and their community,
and revere the Gods through spiritual traditions.
LOVE LIVES HERE.
Amanda, a fashion designer from New York, visited the Ubud shop in early 2018. In 2019, she and her partner Sam created this art for our reusable cotton shopping bag as their way to support our causes. This is now our shop's signature art.
Three love stories are showing in this photo of our Ubud shop.
Love from Jessie (who instagrammed this photo during the lockdown), a shop owner in Antwerp, Belgium who loves Bali's healing energy so much she comes back once a year with her friends and visit us with a big hug. Love from Russell and Ani from Bali, founders of global ecobricks.org, who designed and built the unique LOVESTORIES rooftop sign from used plastic bottles they cleaned out from the beaches. Love from Efren and Britney, mural artists from Austin, Texas who were so stoked to do that storefront mural when they visited the island in May 2019, and then became sponsors to 5-year-old Dedek for her one-year school fees.
ALL WE NEED IS LOVE.
