• Craft your own souvenir with local artisans

 

The wood carver, Malang, makes beautiful sculptures in all sizes. Either African art or bring your own design or picture of what you want him to make. He is also famous for his chairs and kitchen equipments like trey, cutleries, bowls etc. Why not have a set made?

The silversmith, Bai, use old traditions to turn pieces of silver into fantastic pieces of jewellery. His bracelets and necklaces are well known and spending some time with him really makes you appreciate your new jewelry.

Lamin the tailor is very often fully occupied creating cloths, pillows, curtains and more for travelers. If you have anything you need to have made, why not let Lamin do it. And to top it all up, let's invite the tie&dye / batik master Ante so that you can create your very own pattern on your fabric!

And of course, you don´t have to be around all the time; you can still enjoy a lovely holiday in the sun, on the beach, exploring the surroundings while having your products made!
