Artisan Information

Tomomi

Shop all Tomomi products

Bali has become Tomomi Takahashi's favorite place. After visiting Bali several times on vacation, she decided to move there in 2004. "Balinese people are friendly and always smile – that made it easy for me to get close to them. Also, they have a strong religion and great interest in art and culture," she explains.

Tomomi speaks Bahasa Indonesia fluently. She lived in Vietnam for almost six months and worked in an interior decor shop before moving to Bali. There she was introduced to furniture and handicrafts from different places such as Africa, Indonesia, and Thailand.

Tomomi was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1975. She graduated from a Tokyo university with a major in art and design. "My childhood dream has guided me to create something different with my life," Tomomi says. Together with a Balinese friend, she designs and creates accessories made mostly of leather, and also of bone. "A wild and fashionable idea," the artist notes.

With her designs, Tomomi perpetuates Balinese tradition and empowers women through training and providing jobs in a community environment.

"My childhood dream has guided me to create something different with my life," she affirms.

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.
