About the Artisans:
Mitra Bali, a non-profit, non-governmental organization, functions loosely as a cooperative representing artisans who make wood, silver, bamboo, coconut, ceramic and other handicrafts.  Located on the island of Bali, the organization was formed in 1993 to support poor artisans facing ruin because well-established businesses controlled prices and monopolized the burgeoning Bali tourism market.  The cooperative only works with producers who support gender equity, provide healthy working conditions, use environmentally sustainable materials, and do not exploit child labor or women.  Mitra Bali helps artisans during periods of low orders with no-interest loans and the loaning of cows.  Mitra Bali also supports a reforestation program, an environmental initiative, as well as an effort to prevent artisans from selling their land.
