"I really enjoy my life as a model, dancer, actress, wife, and mother of a beautiful daughter…."
"I was born in 1976 in a village where people preserve their traditional culture. Art has always been a part of my family, as my mother is a dancer.
"When I was little, I learned to dance. As times passed and I got older, I started a new career as a painting model in 1995, and the next year I played a part in a television mini series. It was a true story of romance that happened in Ubud between Don Antonio Blanco, a European painter, and Ni Ronji, a dancer and model. They lived a happy life until death tore them apart.
"Working as a model, dancer and actress has enabled me to travel to a number of countries. One day in 2001, I met a man from Wina, Austria, who had been living in Bali for several years. His name is Georg Erhart. His appreciation of, and respect for, Balinese art and culture made me fall in love with him. It was very important for me that my relationship was with a person who understands and respects my beliefs and culture. Even though I married a foreigner, I never wanted to part from my traditions. However, loving my own culture very much doesn't stop me from learning about others, and I learned lots of new things from Georg.
"My mother loves to wear batik textiles and she has a large collection of very old batiks. I became even more fascinated with batik ever since I traveled around Indonesia and realized that this is a product of Indonesian culture that is appreciated throughout the world. I know that the value of batik is not confined to apparent beauty - the kind of shallow beauty that impresses by the complexity of designs or harmony of colors. Moreover, batik has a divine beauty evoked by its design, with a deep idealistic worth resultant from the merging of Hindu-Javanese and Chinese cultures. It is a kind of spiritual beauty that makes Indonesian batik stand out over that of other countries.
"I try to make something special and different from batik textiles. Along with Georg, I select the finest silk batik of Indonesia to create fashionable gift items, presented in an elegant box and marketed as 'Melati's Collection.' In my spare time, I also love to design jewelry.
"I really enjoy my life as a model, dancer, actress, wife, and mother of a beautiful daughter named Ni Luh Maha Chandani."
I bought two scarves and received them in two days!! One was a gift for a dear friend, and the other for myself. They are truly works of art, and the packaging was beyond compare. Thank you so much for such beautiful scarves. I am sure both of us will enjoy them for many years to come.
Melati, I purchased the Red Fern batik silk for my girlfriend's Valentine's Day present and she loved it! And it looks great on her too. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and wonderful skill. I'll check your items again soon. Your friend, Charles
I just purchased one of Melati's lovely silk fans as a gift for a friend. The wrapping on its own was impressive, but my friend and I were astounded with the beauty and workmanship of the fan.
I purchased an ""Ocean and Forest"" shawl. It is absolutely stunning in real life. I intend to purchase additional shawls in the future.
The ""Black Fern"" fan is absolutely beautiful! My mother was thrilled to receive such an exquisite gift. Thank you!
I purchased 2 shawls. Both of them are absolutely beautiful. I'm very satisfied with the quality and the elegant way they are packaged. I'll keep one for myself and give the other one as a precious gift to somebody who I know will appreciate and treasure it. I would like to congratulate the artist and I hope to purchase more in the future. Thanks.

Wow, what a gorgeous shawl, a truth work of art, beautiful quality silk - the packaging was lovely & having the box to store it in is very special - thank you so much!
I ordered two silk scarves from Melatl's Collection and they absolutely are top quality. The weight is substantial, the colors are rich and the patterns are unique and very classy. The packaging was lovely, and included were instructions on how to refold my scarves to store in the lovely fabric boxes they arrived in. I will continue to order from Novica for they have never failed to impress me.
I have purchased several scarves from Melati's collection--they are really stunning.
The burgundy fan opens smoothly and easily, like a flamenco dancer's fan, and is a nice weight. It is beautiful and functional. I sent one of Melati's fans to a sister so she could put it on the wall to enhance the feng shui. My sister was delighted with her gift. A batik fan is an excellent accessory for the summer; consider making a collection of these beauties.
Dear Melati, Very many thanks for your wonderful items! They are strikingly beautiful! I'm very pleased to have them. Thank you! Yours sincerely,
Absolutely beautiful, intricate fan. Would highly recommend. Thank you!
My ""springtime "" scarf arrived, beautifully packaged and I was thrilled. The colors and design were so unique. I've never seen anything quite like it. I wore my ""springtime"" scarf with my new ""ginger ruffles"" made by Sasina, and the combination was stunning. Thank you Melati for my unbelievably pretty scarf. I'm extremely please with it and hope to order more in the future.
Just received the Sky Blue Blossom Silk Batik Scarf and Deep Blue Blossom Silk Batik Fan. I am thrilled with the quality of both items. They were packed with such care and I will most certainly purchase from Melati's Collection again. The silk scarf will be a gift for my niece and I know she will love it.
Exquisite craftsmanship. I cannot praise Melati's Collection enough. My friend was very happy with the gift I bought her. It was purchased and delivered very easily/promptly. Thank you.....I'll be back! G.P.Catanzaro
I had got the ""'Red Fern'"" and ""'Golden Rings'"" fan for my family. Is so lovely with wondeful packing. We feel so please with it. Thank you so much~!
This is the most beautiful scarf! The turquoise and black over the golden yellow background, all combine to make the perfect medley of eye-catching elegance. I love the super soft feel of this silk and the size is wonderful, not too big - not too small :)! The linen box it arrived in is extra handsome as well...pretty enough to display proudly on my shelf! Thank you so much for everything, Melati Collection. What a talented designer and professional presentation of her work.
I LOVE MY BLACK FERN FAN THAT I BOUGHT. I USE MY FANS IN CHURCH. IT WAS LOVELY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. PAM TAYLOR

Thank-you for the beautiful Sky Blue Blossom silk scarf and matching silk fan. They are both very elegant. The weight of the silk is perfect, neither too heavy/hot nor too flimsy. The fringe on the scarf is especially luxuriant. And it's so much fun and so feminine having the fan too! It is genuinely useful ---though unusual in Victoria, Canada! Thank-you again! Best wishes, Kathleen Berthiaume
Exquisite fan with beautiful details; bought it for a wedding. Sturdy construction. Feels too elegant to use casually; I wish I had more fancy occasions to warrant such an eye-catching accessory!

I purchased the red batik shawl and it's stunning. Even more stunning when it's on, I feel like I'm encased in beauty and peace. Thank you for what you do.

The Ruby Royale shawl is stunning. I feel like a princess wrapping it around myself. The softness of the silk, and the quality, and the pattern-- all so tastefully and elegantly composed... I'm surpised every time I see it in my drawer, of how fresh it is, and how it inspires me to acknowledge what I love in every area of my life.
I absolutey love my shawl. The presentation was most attractive along with the small postal card! Best, Margaret Reeder

I am thoroughly enjoying the beautiful silk batik scarf ""Springtime"" from Melati's collection. Since it has been on my wishlist for a long time, I was very excited to receive it. The silk is a good weight and very lustrous. The design is elegant and perfect for this season and the blue coordinates very well with my new spring coat. The fringing adds uniqueness to the scarf as well. I am very happy to receive this lovely item and would purchase from Melati's collection again without hesitation.
Dear Melati, Thank you for the beautiful kipas you've made, I'd almost forgotten how nice they are on the hot days we've been having. Only one was unwrapped, the other three are for upcoming birthdays, but I'll let you know the recipients reactions at a later time. Thank you again, I'm very pleased with mine, Greetje
