SUKU maintains partnerships with craftspeople and artisan communities throughout Indonesia with an emphasis on social and environmental sustainability. All of their business is fair-trade and in support of economic empowerment for local people. They strive to uphold the ongoing tradition of natural hand dyeing and traditional craftsmanship, keeping the production process authentic and as close to the source as possible. They also work closely with their Studio in Bali for the small-scale production of SUKU bedding and leisurewear. Skilled Balinese artisans dip dye and hand paint the fabric using a traditional Indonesian batik technique - this is a process that takes up to three weeks to complete. Hand dyeing and hand sewing are delicate, labor-intensive processes. Each production is beautifully unique in its own way. What you can expect from a SUKU product is a unique item made with love and intention.
