When you take home one of our Rattan products, you are not only taking a beautiful and durable piece, you are also taking a small part of Lombok, supporting the environment and local communities.

MEET THE ARTISAN AWAN
Awan lives with his family in the North of Lombok. With the Earthquake of August 2018 (eruption of the volcano Rinjani) their village was almost completely destroyed. The village is located only one hour away from Rinjani. Awan was working in the tourism industry before. After the earthquake he had to find another solution. So he and his family started to make Rattan products. They are a really small business. He mainly involves the women of the family since it’s a great additional work to do at home when they are with the kids. Depending on the orders they get, it’s up to ten women helping Awan produce.
He wishes to grow his Rattan business, that one day he can be part of the biggest asian crafts exhibition in Jakarta. He is building a small shop in his village with the hope to sell his products to local tourists.
We hope with our orders we can help Awan finish building his little shop and that one day we will see his stand in the exhibition in Jakarta.
SARA - PAULO - LIZA - TIAGO
We are all longtime friends, but this is the first time we went traveling together. We love Nature, Surfing, and eating Tempeh so being "stuck" in Lombok in Indonesia seemed like a really good deal for us. On the other side, we didn't know what consequences this pandemic could bring.
We decided to stay!
Everything changed very fast. Within one week, after we made our decision, almost all the tourists escaped back to their countries and there were no more people getting to Lombok. Although we were happily safe, we saw that instantly a lot of shops, restaurants, and small businesses were closing due to the lack of tourism.
A financial catastrophe for all the locals around us. Seeing all of this happening was heartbreaking and we started to wonder how we could help this lovely community.
One day, after surfing there was this local woman selling some handmade products on the beach:
Beautiful Sarong towels, cute shell bracelets, and Rattan accessories. Every Piece was different. She told us that she didn’t sell anything during the whole day yet. “No Tourists, no business“ she said.
That was when we realized it!
We have to help them by selling their lovely products! This is our way to help.
