The Treasures-Design label was started from the desire to make beautiful clothing and accessories that are made under fair working conditions. The items are handmade in Bali, Indonesia. The artisans that Treasures Design works with are given the opportunity to grow along with Treasures. Each maker receives a salary that covers their monthly costs and they also receive allowances for medical costs and education costs. A purchase at Treasures thus supports Balinese artisans and their families, while also preserving traditional craft techniques.
Treasures-Design visits their artisans once or twice a year but is in daily contact with them. The leather comes from a recognized leather supplier in Bali. The hides come from the same factory in Java and this factory is visited several times a year by their sourcing partner in Bali. Depending on the finishing, they do vegetable tanning or chemical tanning, with vegetable tanning being preferred. Treasures Design has consciously chosen to work with leather, because leather does not break down over time, unlike synthetic material, but rather becomes more beautiful with the years. It ensures that their accessories will last a long time, and don't end up as a disposable product.
