The flickering light of the candle sparkles through and immediately gives any area a magical atmosphere. The perfect decoration for every table, bookshelf or nightstand. Indonesian coconuts are transformed by hand, into beautiful candle covers for your home.
Use this tropical coconut cover to highlight any room at home. Simply put the cover on a small teal light and let the dreamy night begin.
Coconut trees are a big part of every Indonesian's daily life. The locals even call it "The tree of life" because every part of the tree is used to sustain their lives. The leaves, the fruits (coconuts) and the wood. Integrate a small part of Indonesian culture into your daily life.

Rozi is 23 years young and a pretty smart young man.
His village is really close to the boats that usually take all the tourists from Lombok to the famous Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Gili Meno. So usually they would live indirectly out of tourism, providing food and supplies to the islands. After the earthquake in August 2018 they were in a similar situation as now. Without any income. Rozi cares a lot for his village. He started his coconut business to create jobs for his community. Rozi works together with nine other people from his family. He always tries to involve as many people as he can. The women usually focus on coconut oil production and the men in Coconut Bowl carving.
When Rozi is not shaping spoons or polishing coconuts, he really likes to play the guitar or go fishing. In the future he wants to be the major of the village and his dream is to get enough orders, so his whole village can work in the coconut business.
When we visited Rozi and his lovely community, we were warmly welcomed by smiles, coffee and delicious desserts (of course made of coconut). We want to help Rozi to achieve his dreams and grow the business.

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.
