During Covid, my Mum and I decided to further support the Indonesian community by purchasing a sewing machine and providing sewing training to some local women. By providing them with an income, they have been able to keep their families and communities fed, while their husbands were out of work.
It is still dark times in Indonesia, as most locals rely on tourism to support themselves, and with no tourism combined with a lack of government support, they were stretched pretty thin.
We focused our training on small pieces, such as headbands and scrunchies which adds a cute accessory to our range as well as allowing these women to practice their skills.
These pieces are handmade, with potentially small variances between sizes and colours. We have kept the price very reasonable to allow for this. Please know that when you purchase these pieces, you are supporting an Indonesian community as well.
