Artisan Information

Nenny Lukhita

Shop all Nenny Lukhita products

My name is Nenny Lukhita and though I was born in Sulawesi, I grew up in Bali. As a child, I became fascinated by the traditional Wayang puppet theater performances. It was the only form of entertainment we had at the time, since TV hadn't arrived in Bali yet. I was always trying to make my own dolls and I dressed them up with old pieces of kabayas and sarongs. I like the unique way and the characteristic accessories that Indonesian women wear to enhance their femininity.

One day, when I was 21, I saw a book on Javanese terracotta figurines from the Majapahit Period (12-15th century). I was immediately captivated by their beautiful faces, but most especially, by the magnificent hairstyles and the rich jewels of the court ladies and their servants. It strongly reminded me of the splendid adornments and hairdos worn in traditional Javanese marriages.

"This gave me the idea to create my own collection of Majapahit puppets. I didn't join a special art school for this. I just learned it from my father because he's an artist. I worked along with master carvers and painters to create the heads and bodies, and I started to adorn each puppet in its own individual way. We were successful in our venture and our small team has grown, because our puppets and dolls have become famous throughout Indonesia."

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.
