How you can support?

By buying a hand-carved Barong magnet and/or a bottle cap in the shape of a Bali lion (see videos below), you support the villagers in the Mas/ Ubud area, 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. The Bali lion is a symbol of strength in Bali. The Barong figure stands for goodness in Bali.

One magnet: 5 € including shipping. Available as pictured.

Bottle stopper: 8 € including shipping. Available in white and in natural colours.

Wood type: Kayu Sengon from Bali (Albizia wood).

100% of the proceeds go to the craft artists and chanceforchange projects.

Please order by emailing Ernst Flügel with details of quantity and colour.

By buying a handmade hand fan from a traditional hand fan atelier in Denpasar, you are supporting the artisans of Wiracana Handfan. The hand fan has been in fashion for a long time and is now somewhat underestimated despite times of steadily rising temperatures. chanceforchange wants to make it a fashionable item again and at the same time support the craft and the people behind it who have acquired this art.


A handmade hand fan costs: 28€ including shipping. Available as pictured below. Prints and colours flexible to choose.

100% of the proceeds go to the craft artists and chanceforchange projects.

Pre-order by sending an email to Ernst Flügel (please take a screenshot of the selected fan).

Material fabric: polyester and silk

Material wood: cultivated mahogany (from Indonesia)

PS: Translations of the Indonesian prints

Puanas Banget=Very hot and Ingin Dingin=Please cold

Buy a hand-painted approx. 10 cm wooden egg from Gianyar/ Bali including wooden stand for 25 € including shipping and thereby support the sustainable development goal No Poverty. With the proceeds from the sale of an Easter Egg we can pay 2 days wages of a rubbish hero in the rubbish separation plant (PGR).

In the Gianyar area (central Bali) there are still many talented artists. But the new generation is ebbing away. By buying a hand-painted egg, you also give this art a chance to be seen outside Bali and motivate the artists here to continue practising and teaching this talent.

In the short video you can see the Balinese artist I Nyoman Teker. We met him on the beach and discovered his Balinese wooden Easter eggs. Then we visited him and his family in Bitera, Gianyar (Central Bali).

  • Motif on the left: Starling Bali (An endangered bird that lives only in Bali and symbolises Bali's mascot for many locals)
  • Motif in the middle: Barong (A lion-like creature that symbolises goodness)
  • Motif in the right: Ganesha (elephant-man. In Hindu belief Ganesha symbolises the divine)
  • Colours as shown and according to stock
  • Pre-order with details of quantity, motif and desired colour, matt or glossy - please send an email

For your information: A hand-painted egg usually takes up to 12 hours of work. We are very impressed by the patience, calmness and perseverance of these Balinese artists and by their cultural knowledge. We learned a lot about the Starling Bird, Ganesha Bali and Barong

In Bali's tourist hustle and bustle, we are happy to rediscover the real Indonesian qualities through these local artists.
