Report highlights Balinese and batik designs
Silver jewelry makers in Indonesia are highlighting traditional motifs in their releases to differentiate their products and boost exports. Of the suppliers interviewed for the report, many will be creating models with intricate vintage designs featuring Balinese and batik motifs that showcase the artistry of craftsmen in Indonesia.
“To remain competitive in the silver jewelry industry, suppliers are creating quality silver jewelry with unique and traditional designs that will stand out in the market,” said Emerela Puspita, Hinrich Foundation Indonesia export consultant.
The creation of unique handcrafted pieces is made possible by the existence of communities where metalworking techniques have been passed down from generation to generation. Silversmiths from the island of Java are known for filigree work, while those from Bali are known for granulation.
