Ametis-Villa Bali Acts Empowers Indonesian Women in Need by Sourcing Sustainable Hand-Woven Goods
At Ametis-Villa Bali, we are delighted to announce that we are further intensifying our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts. With the New Year well and truly underway, we are now more committed than ever to give back to people in need and adopt more sustainable hospitality practices.
We feel morally obliged to make a difference in whatever way possible, and our latest action has been toconnect like-minded suppliers who share our vision. This led us to Du’Anyam, a social enterprise that produces and distributes wicker craftsto empower women, promote Indonesian culture, and improve the health conditions in rural areas.
Each unit at Ametis-Villa Bali now features eco-friendly items such as reusable shopping bags and slippers that have been hand-woven by women from Flores Island, East Nusa Tengara.Made from all-natural Palmyra leaves, these convenient in-villa amenities are a direct result of Du’Anyam’s alternative employment program that supports the practice of traditional wicker weaving.
The sale of these products ultimately helps provide an additional source of income for pregnant women in remote villages who would otherwise be working as farm hands, and thus leaving themselves open to the risk of miscarriage. Under the guidance of Du’Anyam, they now have access to better nutrition, health services and can support their families by using creative skills rather than hard labor.
Ametis Villa-Bali is the preferred accommodation option for savvy travelers seeking the serenity of Canggu as an alternative to the urban sprawl of Seminyak. The property offers a unique concept of home-style luxury that goes above and beyond all expectation. Apart from providing guests with an enriching holiday experience, one thing that also matters to us is contributing to a worthy cause. Our collaboration with a hope-driven venture such as Du’Anyam is all about lifting people up from the cycle of poverty and giving them the dignitary, which is indeed a precious gift.
