THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Komang Sulaksana
"Tegalalang is my parents' village, the place where I learned to make various kinds of handicrafts such as photo albums, photo frames, notebooks and much more. Creating new designs is so much fun for me. Arranging different kinds of materials together is not a hard thing to do but, of course, it requires patience and skill. The materials I use are mostly natural fibers like banana bark, hibiscus leaves, lamtoro and recycled paper.
"I was unable to continue my studies to the level I wanted. This wasn't a good experience but it never crossed my mind to regret what has happened. I never forget to give thanks each day for the life and family I have. They are so great and we work together side by side to create a better future for our children.
"By working with you, I can see that international shoppers are just a click away.""
