Working towards a world where transparent supply chains and ethical working conditions are standard. Business relationships between retailers and producers should be mutually beneficial. Local artisans and factories in Bali should be empowered by doing business with foreign entrepreneurs and companies, rather than oppressed.
The Bali Curator’s main task is to provide sourcing and production management services to foreign entrepreneurs and companies who wish to buy or produce goods in Bali for their business. By being transparent and educating our clients about production processes behind each product, they will be able to consciously choose for production methods that are ethical and (more) sustainable.
The Bali Curator continuously searches for and supports independent artisans in Bali who struggle to grow their business due to lack of management, marketing and English language skills, by connecting international customers to them and help with and teach about managing timelines, meeting deadlines, quality control and communication with the client.
The Bali Curator encourages the local community in Bali to appreciate and see value in (traditional) local craftmanship in three ways. Firstly by supporting local businesses whose vision and mission align with The Bali Curator. Secondly, The Bali Curator actively debates with factory owners about working conditions and value of their employees and aims to show ways in which excisting practices can be improved and how ethical working conditions can attract more international clients. Lastly, The Bali Curator organizes workshops and study tours for students of schools and universities in Indonesia.
