As the (Tenu Ikat Sikka) Weavers Association our aim is to keep our cultural heritage alive, therefore we offer our skills in fabrics and final products to interested buyers or designers as well as to the end customer.
With the support of the intellectual property rights project between Switzerland and Indonesia, we have obtained protection for our Geographical Indication textile fabrics.
Thanks to this project we can also put our practice on a sustainable path.
Each piece is unique and not only allows weavers an economic income but also contributes to sustaining and promoting culture and values into the future.
We are committed to:
- preserving our cultural heritage
- Providing social engagement
- Boosting the creative economy
- Enhancing resource stewardship
Transparency – traceable products
Thanks to the support of the geographical indication project, the Koltiva company is developing a solution for the traceability of our products from the point of sale to the first step of spinning. This is how data and details of the production and distribution chain are being collected from the participants in the process. Soon we hope to be able to cover the origin of the yarn or cotton.
Each product has a unique QR code that allows the buyer to see the production and distribution chain. In addition to verifying data that confirms fair payment and conditions to the participants.
When you check out any of our items we tell you exactly which of these makers were engaged in bringing to life that specific product.
