Yuni's story

Yuni is an artisan from Bali who specializes in batik art on silk. She would like to invest in the purchase of larger amounts of silk for her shawls and scarves.

Yuni has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is her story:

"I learned the art of batik from my mother when I was very young. She has been making batik at home in Java for over 23 years, while waiting each day for my father to come home from the sea. We still design together, especially the floral and bird motifs that are typical in Pekalongan batik. My husband Rieckey also helps me a lot, but as a local Balinese woman, I'm very proud of the fact that I can have the career that I love and be able to provide for myself and my family.

"It means a lot to us that you support us through this microcredit. It will help us to keep on crafting your favorite shawls and scarves, as well as to try out new designs."
