The Early Years The Early Years

Our Artisan Collective was founded in Bali in 1975 by artist and ecoactivist John Hardy. Throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, he worked alongside local artisans, mastering centuries-old jewelry-making techniques, while developing his pioneering approach to eco-conscious, small-scale jewelry production.

These early years crystallized our brand’s enduring commitment to living and working in harmony with the natural world.

Our Artisan Workshop is built in Bali out of low-impact, native materials—bamboo, adobe, thatch—amid 400 acres of rice paddies and an organic permaculture farm. All waste water generated by the workshop is recycled and used to water the farm.

Our Kapal Bamboo Boutique is constructed out of bamboo, thatch and native grasses. It is designed to “float” above the Subak, the sacred irrigation system that waters Bali’s rice fields and flows, undisturbed, below the structure. Fittingly, the 90-foot boutique derives its name, Kapal, from the Balinese word for “boat.”

It is built in such a way that it can be moved at any time and the land returned to its original state.

“Bamboo is this giant, magic grass that stitches up the landscape. When you plant bamboo, you bring back the water and suck up the carbon dioxide. You’re also planting a livelihood for that community—an annual harvest that can be sold as a sustainable alternative to timber, concrete, steel, plastic. You’re providing an economic backbone for rural villages.” 

—Arief Rabik, Executive Director, Bamboo Village Trust
