Details

Carved from Balinese sono wood, these sleek hair pins, or hair sticks, are the perfect accessory for a chic chignon or updo. Spiral motifs depict a storm, and carry a message of encouragement. Made Sumerta from Bhakti Senang Hati crafts the pair by hand. "I've seen many storms in my life, but I'm no longer blaming myself or my limited physical abilities," the artisan says. "As a child, I suffered poliomyelitis, which weakened my legs and I can't go anywhere myself. But I can create something useful and beautiful with my own two hands."

These hair sticks are beautiful. I wear one everyday at work. People compliment me all the time and ask me where I got them. I have a few sets. Absolutely stunning!

Working with Disabilities

Working with Disabilities

Bhakti Senang Hati was founded and is run by people with physical challenges who provide a special service for the physically challenged in Bali. The society also provides wheelchairs and housing, and runs Bhakti Senang Hati Places, a home for children with disabilities. The seven artisans who are members of the foundation use a wheelchair or have a prosthetic leg. This does not stop them from living a full-life and striving to be self-sufficient.

Confronting Adversity

Confronting Adversity

The Bakti Senang Hati Foundation assists persons with disabilities. Living with a disability can be more difficult in Bali than in other places. Bali's Hindu culture carries with it the additional stigma of karma. To be disabled is the physical manifestation of bad karma. Traditionally, the disabled were hidden away and isolation was added to their burden. Attitudes are slowly changing and programs such as the Bakti Senang Hati Foundation teach self-confidence as well as the practical skills that will enable their members to become self-supporting.

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

Although their Novica sales do not provide enough income for each artisan to be self-supporting, these sales have a profound impact on their lives. The income contributes not only to their financial stability but also to their self-esteem. It is important to these artisans that their work is seen and appreciated around the world.

Caring for Children

Caring for Children

There are eight children that the Bakti Senang Hati artisans are able to provide for.
