Wahyu's story

Wahyu is a Javanese artisan who specializes in beaded batik bags. She plans to stock up on fabric and other materials to increase production. Wahyu has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is her story: "I work in Java's legendary batik art. I'm always keen to learn new things and new techniques. My family taught me that I must work hard to succeed in life. Now I am married and we have a lovely daughter. In my small batik workshop, I specialize in handbags, cushion covers and table runners, and add details with beads." "Thank you for your support by funding this micro-credit. For a small artisan, this is really helpful to make my workshop grow. I really hope people like my beaded batik bags and want to buy them. By purchasing my designs, you help also to introduce Indonesian batik motif to the world. Thank you so much!"
