I visited the Baduy people to make products for our next line up. Their village is located outside of Jakarta, Indonesia inside the mountains. The man in the photo is hand weaving a bracelet from a singe rattan vine. It was a refreshing experience to take a bath inside the river.
In 2013, I first visited the village of Miao indigenous people located in Guizhou province, China. Since then we have been making products with them as they are the masters of hand weaving, embroideries and indigo dye.
They live simple life close to the nature. Spending time with them, makes me think what “richness” is about.
