Paper Makers

Bali Insan Creative was founded in 2009 through a partnership with the Wisnu Foundation, solely for the purpose to create economic opportunities that support the livelihoods of people living in Bali Villages and particulalry women. These communities, due to limited education opportunities and poverty have little chance to improve their lives. Through the employment of local people, teaching school children about the importance of recycling and caring for the environment along with implementing several farming activities in Bali Villages, Bali Insan Creative is making a positive impact on these communities. 

To support this work, Bali Insan Creative produces a range of sustainably produced products currently sold both locally and internationally.
