Grant Projects: Activities
Women's group from Indonesia participated in JFW International Fashion Fair (Asian Neighbors Program)
update：July 23, 2012
Two ladies from Kalimantan, Ms. Alty and Ms. Puput participated in "JFW International Fashion Fair" (July 18-20), held at Tokyo Bigsite, Ariake. They
were invited by the government of Indonesia to exhibit their products.
Their brand “Borneo Chic” presents bags and other items using traditional
handicraft materials such as rattan, water reed, and naturally dyed Ikat.
Their group has been a recipient of Toyota Foundation Asian Neighbors Program (Project representative: Mr. Panthom Sidi Priyandoko). The project finished in 2011, but the group continued to develop their activities. They now run a shop in Jakarta, and the products enjoy popularity among both locals and foreigners.
It was a good news for us to know that the group continues to grow, and utilize their traditional handicraft skills to improve their standard of living.
