Awan lives with his family in the North of Lombok. With the Earthquake of August 2018 (eruption of the volcano Rinjani) their village was almost completely destroyed. The village is located only one hour away from Rinjani. Awan was working in the tourism industry before. After the earthquake he had to find another solution. So he and his family started to make Rattan products. They are a really small business. He mainly involves the women of the family since it’s a great additional work to do at home when they are with the kids. Depending on the orders they get, it’s up to ten women helping Awan produce.
He wishes to grow his Rattan business, that one day he can be part of the biggest asian crafts exhibition in Jakarta. He is building a small shop in his village with the hope tosell his products to local tourists.
We hope with our orders we can help Awan finish building his little shop and that one day we will see his stand in the exhibition in Jakarta.

HELPING LOMBOK'S COMMUNITIES DURING COVID-19
In a time where Tourism is non-existing, the Sasak people of Lombok Island, Indonesia are going through tough times.
Their main income comes from selling their handmade arts to tourists. During the COVID-19 era that we are living, these villages have no income anymore.
The goal of Sasak Market is to help them sell their authentic handmade products online.
With every purchase you make, you are supporting the local communities of artisans of Lombok.
