ASMARA Art Collection
We have chosen some of our favourite items for you to view.
Our products are expertly handcrafted in Lombok, Bali, Java and Sumba, to mention just a few places, in Indonesia.
Our craftsmen and women create these products for us using traditional, natural materials and methods that have been handed down through generations. At Asmara, we give some of these treasures a little twist of modern design.
Hand-woven textiles and baskets, earthenware pottery, wood and bamboo carvings and palm leaf boxes are just a small sample of Lombok's products that are famous throughout the Indonesian Archipelago - they are internationally renowned too.
Here are some of our customers' favourite things...
A selection of cushion covers made from Lombok's fine hand-woven textiles on a big storage bench.
The huge box bench measures 230x110x110cm and is made in Java from reclaimed teak.
Also shown are carved wooden holders for displaying wall hangings, these can be made to order for almost any width.
The small hanging, (far right), depicts some traditional Sasak designs.
The oval box bag is woven from mountain grass and measures 30x23x6cm.
