People know me as someone who is always keen to learn new things and new techniques. I was born in 1973 in East Java and I come from a loving family who taught me that I must work hard if I want to succeed in life. Now I'm married and we have a lovely daughter.

In 2000, after graduating from high school, I worked at a hotel in Singaraja for a couple of years. Still trying to look for a better life, I moved to Denpasar where I met Ms. Yumiko, a featured artisan, and I began to work at her batik workshop.

I wasn't only working, I was also learning how to make top quality batik, as well as how to contact suppliers and how to sell. One of my greatest learning experiences was when Ms. Yumiko received a large order through you. We had to apply ourselves, be smart, calculate pricing and time. We got to know what we were capable of achieving considering the time we had to complete the order!

I was so happy when we received this order though, because it meant a good financial bonus to take home for my family.

Now I have my own small batik workshop, where I specialize in handbags, cushion covers and table runners. I detail them with beads, like Ms. Yumiko taught me.

My inspiration comes from many sources, including shopper's comments, magazines, fabrics, and websites. However I don't copy what I see – it inspires me to create something new and original while keeping it trendy. My designs might take longer to finish because of the hand-sewn beaded details, but I am always satisfied with the end result.

I hope that by working with you, I can improve our family's quality life and provide my daughter with a better education.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
