Komang's story

Komang is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in natural fiber journals, ornaments and home décor. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of paper straw and replace his broken drill press.

Komang has been selling through NOVICA since 2007.

This is his story:
Komang comes from Tegalalang, where he learned to make various kinds of handicrafts. "Creating new designs is so much fun. Arranging different kinds of materials together is not a hard thing to do but, of course, it requires patience and skill. I mostly use natural materials like banana bark, hibiscus leaves, lamtoro palm and recycled paper."

"Hi, with your support I can have working capital to purchase materials and replace the broken machine. I will use it well in order to replenish my stock. Thank you to all of you!"
