ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Bali Werkstätte is the new baby-project by Verena Berlisg a French-Austrian who moved to Indonesia 3 years ago.
The founder loves to re-invent old handcrafts by adding a modern approach or simply to re-discover it again and pull it out of the dust.
The designs of her bags which she designs under the brand name UNIQUE ALLURE reflect that passion.
Since her arrival in Bali, she therefore couldn’t resist to stop at every single production atelier, annoying the artisans with special requests or simply staying there to watch them MAKE.
Mainly using their hands, using techniques, which have been lost since a long time in our Western world.
After a few kopi-kopi (coffees), she made friends with these talented artisans and now works with them closely.
Everything started with the sourcing of materials and production for her bags, baskets and shoes, followed by furniture & deco for her Bali home, followed by more sourcing for friends in Jakarta & further for friends abroad.
BALI WERKSTÄTTE (engl. Bali Workshops) was born.
Naming it in reference to the creative collective ‘Wiener Werkstätte’ from Vienna, Verena’s hometown.
Wiener Werkstätte was established in 1903, by Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffman the Wiener Werkstätte (engl.: Vienna's Workshops) was a production community of visual artists in Vienna, Austria bringing together architects, artists and designers, working within the fields of ceramics, fashion, silver, furniture, and the graphic arts.
