How We Work

In 2016, Sekar Kawung worked closely with the artisans in Lambanapu and Mauliru villages in East Sumba, Indonesia. Starting in 2018, we decided to close our office in East Sumba and work remotely from Jakarta in order to give the artisans some space to grow independently. 

Now, Sekar Kawung bridges the traditional artisans in East Sumba to audiences from around the world, including you. We created a fair and transparent profit sharing with the artisans. From the total profit, we give 50% back to them, and the other 50% is used to operate our office in Jakarta, as well as cover our travel expenses. This way, we hope to build a sustainable cultural heritage.
