Christmas tree decorations handmade in bali

Due to the successful art-egg sale last Easter, we have developed a collection of Christmas tree balls and stars in cooperation with artists from the village of Blitar in Gianyar/ Central Bali. The baubles and stars are handmade from Albizia wood (Bali), have a hanging eyelet and come with a golden hanging ribbon. Per Christmas ball or star the artists need about 8-12 hours of work. All motifs are hand painted and available now while stocks last.

All proceeds go 100% to the artists and to the rainforest reserve Meroq/ East Kalimantan/ Indonesia supported by chanceforchange.


Motifs and colours:
Barong and Rangda:
The Balinese spiritual classic of good and evil. Available in gold and yellow

Bird Jalak:
The mascot of Bali. Available in pink, yellow and light blue.
Rainforest: Shades of Green, in aid of the Meroq rainforest reserve in East Kalimantan supported by chanceforchange.
Ricefields: In Bali, ricefields are one of the attractions for tourists. Unfortunately, they are increasingly sold and cultivated. Yet the hard work in the fields symbolises exactly the unity of man, animal and nature that is needed.

moneyholder handmade in bali from old metal

In cooperation with the Balinese start-up Kunangjewelry, we have created a product from recycled scrap metal: A money clip to keep cash in your pocket.
Kunangjewelry has made it its mission to produce jewellery and accessories from waste and sees itself as a bridge to responsible consumption. The team takes great care to focus on the people who make the products.

The scrap metal for the money clip comes from the waste bank communities in Denpasar/ Bali and the bamboo bag is handmade by a couple in a small village in Bangli (Central Bali). Reuse, recycle and revalue as a status symbol. We like that. Available for pre-order now.

All proceeds go 100% to the artisans and to financially support Parahyangan Green Recyle's waste sorting.

Scarf with iban Dayak Tattoo Design

In collaboration with Indonesian tattoo artist Hendra Herpianto from West Kalimantan, the aim is to bring traditional Iban Dayak tattoo design into local and global awareness and to preserve the remaining tradition of this tattoo culture. We also use this art as a voice to raise awareness about rainforest conservation in East Kalimantan.
Hendra Herpianto chose the Iron Wood/ Iron Flower motif for our collaboration, which symbolises strength and power. Iron Wood is a wood that takes hundreds of years to grow. A motif that only selected Dayak are allowed to have engraved, slowly but surely fading and hardly visible anymore. Available for pre-order now.

All proceeds go 100% to the Meroq/ East Kalimantan/ Indonesia rainforest reserve supported by chanceforchange.

Bottle Cap and Magnet handmade in bali


With the purchase of a Barong magnet and/or a bottle cap you support artists from the village and the surrounding area of Mas/ Ubud, Central Bali. Many of them are talented wood carvers, but they already belong to the older generation. Their children, the youth, no longer practise this profession and prefer jobs in the tourism sector, for example. Understandable - but we find their craft worthy of support and fridge magnets and bottle tops always go.

All proceeds go 100% to the artisans and to chanceforchange projects.

The Bali lion is a symbol of strength in Bali. The Barong figure stands for goodness in Bali.
