From Mitra Bali, a fair trade group
Mitra Bali in Indonesia.
Throughout the Indonesian island of Bali, small craft producers struggle to compete in a competitive marketplace. While demand is high for traditional Balinese craftworks, only large producers have the means and capacity to compete. To promote the unique arts of small artists and to combat their marginalization, nonprofit organization Mitra Bali works directly with producer groups, employing over 1,000 men and women, helping them to establish pricing and distribute their work throughout the world. In addition, Mitra Bali has set up a free design center for producers, including a library, education on the use of environmentally sustainable resources, consultations with product designers and monthly workshops. Mitra Bali markets its artisans’ silver jewelry, sustainable wood and bamboo products and one-of-a-kind ceramics.
