What is the challenge in this field of business?
“Well, I could say the most challenge will be the location. It took us 15 hours from the Main city in Palangkaraya. And also working with people from the village that have different mindset with us is sometimes difficult, but it’s always fun to have different opinion.”

Do you have any plan in future how you will Celebrate your first-year sales anniversary?
“We actually do not have really plan yet. Because it is really new for us, maybe we will make eco-tour or we bring some people to the village, where we produce the rattan, and getting to know the weaver personally in the middle of the forest.”
