Product Information

Details

Eka was born on August 11, 1978 in Tampaksiring Gianyar, a tranquil village in Bali that still has strong Balinese customs and cultures. Her father is a hard-working wood carver and her mother sells garments. She is the first child of three siblings. I'm Ni Putu Sri Ekawati from Bali. I'd like to introduce my wood carving collection to the world. People say I'm a stubborn woman with strong principles and that I never give up. I like aerobic, yoga and also reading. I never expected that I would be a single parent. I felt that life was so cruel, unfair and too tough for me, but life must go on. I had to take care both of my children while I worked as a nurse in a hospital; one of them was still just a baby. Every time I saw their innocent faces, I felt something heavy inside my heart lighten up my spirit. I remembered my responsibilities for their better future, something that I and my late husband discussed and really wanted. Children shouldn't know hard times and suffering. I decided to continue my husband's business with Novica. Thanks to God, I had learned a little bit of it from my late husband, so I could manage the carvers and also monitor the production so that the quality will still be as good as my husband's. I also joined Novica under my own name for a wood carving collection; they are selling well. I'm so glad and proud that so many people in the world like my products; it has really happened because Novica has been helping me through its online marketing. Today, the income from Novica has increased by 75% compared to the income of my husband from Novica before. I love the tranquil environment during the night; it's the best time to evaluate myself, what I did today, and also the growth of the business. I keep trying any potential possibilities--we'll never know the result if we never try. I really like wood sculpture, so now I have started to get involved myself in the production and also the design. I am inspired by the current trends and combine it with Balinese culture. The production itself is done by 3 men and 3 women; they are wood carvers who work with manual tools according their skills and talents. Original Artisan Story: I am Eka, and I was introduced to Novica by my husband Putra Suteja. Unfortunately he passed away in 2009 after a long illness, leaving me with a 3 year old daughter and a 10 day old son. I decided to honor his memory by continuing carving, something I learnt from my father from a very young age. Dad would carve and my mother, brothers and I would finish the pieces. We worked this way until I married Putra Suteja. Being associated with Novica means I can feed my children - I will always do my best to provide a good future for them. Thanks Novica and thanks to you all, because you encourage me to continue developing new ideas and designs for the sculptures so they will be always liked.
