Story Behind the Art: 'My name is Liem Hauw and I was born on August 31, 1969 in Java. I started to work in 1995 after graduating from the university. I worked at some residential projects and hotels. I began by opening an art workshop in Bali. I work with textiles made from natural materials such as fragrant root, sea grass, water hyacinth, and many others. Maybe God had planned this way of life for me. My works became recognized and I started to make my own curtains, blinds, floor mats, mosquito nets, cushions, table runners, etc. Now I also produce frames, vases, baskets, and lamps by weaving banana bark, sea grass, and others. I work in metal as well. I keep thinking about expanding my work by creating new designs.'

I bought this runner for a coffee table to try and protect the surface from a 3 year old. I did not want to spend much, it couldn't be too long, but I was particular about color/design since it was to be displayed so prominently. This runner checked all the boxes, but it is very "rough". The "fragrant root" is a type of straw and it splinters (there is enough cotton to keep it supple). My only concern is that my cat loves it and has tried a number of times to use it as a scratching post. But it is pretty, hope it lasts (as well as the table top).

This product exceeded my expectations! The runner is a vibrant blue color with textural beige elements woven throughout. I also was delighted to receive information about the person who crafted the product in Indonesia; this made the runner even more special. The craftsmanship is excellent. I would buy another product from this craftsman. I highly recommend this product.
I have the place mat set that matches these by same artisan and is exact same great workmanship and colors and love it. I wanted this runner for a mahogany coffee table and it works perfectly. My Maine Coon Cat Mix took an immediate interest to it as in wanting to lick and saw his interest in wanting to nibble and perhaps chew it so used a water-based made-for-cats bitter spray to curb that right away, which did not affect the color or appearance of runner at all. Very nicely made and nice to know all natural and keeping an art and craft alive through purchasing.
