Our story begins as a true labor of love for Co-founders Art & Lindsey. For the past decade Art has witnessed first hand the destruction of our coral reefs due to over harvesting, over exporting and fluctuations in water conditions.
"We watched as thousands of corals were exported all around the World every day; dead corals, stressed corals, illegal corals and endangered corals. It didn't matter to them as long as they could turn a profit."
Determined to do his part to correct the issue, Art has teamed up with Lindsey and her passion for the Indonesian, artisan culture. Together they set out on a mission to educate and to create awareness through the sale of their Signature Bali Necklaces.
"We're determined not only to restore the bio diversity in The Coral Triangle near Bali, but we also believe that with enough support we can restore the economic climate in these communal fishing villages."
Lying at the heart of it all, is the Tropical Island of Bali. It's here they met Ketut and Wayan in a remote, carving village. Together they built a team of local carvers in order to create Bali Necklaces from repurposed, water-buffalo bone. A percentage of the proceeds is then redirected back to coral reef restoration in this area and ultimately creates a better life not only for the animals of the coral reefs, but for the culture of people that live on these islands.
