Today we are taking a deep dive to chat with one of our talented artisans.

We visit Ketut and Saki in Indonesia. They are the owner of the shop that make our amazing beaded chandeliers that have become so popular at the Bazaar.


Chatting with KetuT & Saki

Who else besides your partner helps you in the business and with manufacturing the chandeliers?
 

 

Ketut: Saki does most of the work but if we get a big order he will ask a friend named Totok to help. 

Where do you find your inspiration for making and designing the products?

 

 

Ketut: My husband is very creative and our customers often give us designs to work with.  

Where do you get the material you use in creating the beautiful designs, is there a favourite product to make?

 

Saki: Most of the material comes from Java. Our favourite product to make is the ranting rattan chandelier it challenged me and is complex to make.  

Indonesia is a pretty special place to visit from our perspective what is your favourite part about living there? 

 

Saki: Well I like it, it is easier to get a job and have a business and there is more money than back home in Java and my wife is from here! 


OWB: Indonesia has handled Covid relatively well but with the lack of visitors what have been some of the challenges you have faced in the last year? 

 

 

 

Ketut: Orders have slowed down a lot and even though we work & live out of our rented home, we were not able to travel back to our actual home for Ramadan. We sell product in the shop as well so with no visitors it is hard. 

 

" I will be happy if we keep getting orders! And also if we make enough money to make this island our permanent home!"

Every work is done through an idea. I go through thinking and intention to produce. Every piece has a different value. I like and take pride in all the work I do.

There’s a lot of experimenting that happens in their shop! They’re always trying out new colours and fragrances to see which ones do the best. All of the raw materials are sourced locally and micro-batches are produced at their production site just outside of Bangkok.

“it's the birthplace of people to start businesses. It's easy to start. It's an area with a variety of people and a lot of products. I want you to try and get to know Chatuchak Market. The work and ideas from people in the market are diverse. They have come to support people who have come to start anew.”
