Our goal is to showcase Indonesian folk art in a way that both delights and educates. We provide information on where each piece was crafted, how it was made, what materials were used and how traditional art from the different islands has evolved into the functional and decorative items that appeal to buyers.
We have a sense of stewardship for the folk art of Indonesia. In many Indonesian communities, craftsmen had turned to subsistence farming and no longer produce traditional folk art because there was no market for it. We are helping them to keep their art alive by providing a market for their wares and a source of income that is often higher than craftsmen can make farming.
