Advocates of Modern Craftsmanship
Andrew Da Costa, Nathaniel Christian, Ridwan Susanto and Bimo Ario Seto are four changemakers who were brought together by their passion for Indonesian culture and all things wood.
Together, they created Sanoesa - a brand intended to preserve Noesantara's nature, culture and value.
The word “Sanoesa” is the abbreviation of “Satu Noesantara”: satu meaning one and Noesantara refers to the Indonesian archipelago.
Believing in preserving the endangered art of traditional craftsmanship, but with the evolving demands of the society, the trio aims to merge modern design together with it to educate people about the value of handcrafted goods.
A labour of love, Sanoesa takes pride in the process of making, working with local talents of artisans in the Java island. Reforesting the world and being environmentally friendly are an important aspects of their production process which is why they insist on using only recycled timber for all their products.
