My name is Ni Ketut Lastini but my friends just call me Nik. I was born in Mas in 1980, the fourth child of seven. I'm so proud to have been born in Mas, which is also called the 'art village,' since there are many carvers of wood sculptures here. Since I was a girl, I have carved with my parents and siblings.

I loved my childhood. I used to go to the rice fields after school. Sometimes, I helped make sculptures in order to earn more money. I usually used the money I earned to buy school supplies and even pay my school fees. I've had to work ever since I was a child because my parents are just farmers and carvers. But, they are hardworking, which has made me who I am today.

Like other children in my village, I also went to school. I didn't just complete primary school but attended all the way through senior high. After graduating, I began to work. My career started as a salesperson. Aside from promoting things, I also sold fabric back in those days. Eventually, I met an American couple. I worked for them as a shopkeeper in their handicraft shop.

One day, this American couple wanted to change their shop. They wanted to sell Christmas ornaments instead of handicrafts. Yet, their dream never came true, because the wife passed away. From that moment on, I wanted to carry on their dream.

Making Christmas ornaments is one of my hobbies. Usually, an idea will come to my mind and then I bring it to life. Because I'm still single, I am helped by 12 other people. Aside from making ornaments, I also love to swim, run, and cycle. Due to my hobbies, my friends call me a hardworking and creative person.

I hope you'll be able to promote my handcrafted ornaments so I can be a part of people's Christmas joy. Also, I want to recycle things like wood, steel, and aluminum into something better… like Christmas ornaments.

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.
