Our story began at the beginning of 2017 when we moved to Bali, Indonesia, otherwise known as 'The Island of The Gods'. At the time, we had no idea how long we would stay. But as soon as we stepped off the plane we felt at home, so we stayed. And we decided to recreate our lives there.
We were incredibly inspired from living amongst the Balinese people for the following 2 years. We experienced how working directly with the Balinese to handmake products truly helps support their local communities by providing them with an additional source of revenue, which they use primarily for food and education for their families.
The Balinese are incredibly impoverished, often working full time while only making a few hundred dollars a month. The Gardyn of Earth was founded in order to support these local communities in Bali. It is our mission to increase their quality of life through the amazing products we create together on the island.
