Problem

Local craftsmen are starting to disappear as they couldn‘t earn a good monthly income. They have great crafting skills, however, they lack knowledge in marketing so they only produce crafts that does not match with market demand. Ecodoe did a research in the two regions of Indonesia Yogyakarta and Bali, which is the craft & arts center. All crafts made by the smallbased craftsmen only ended up in consignment stores. They have to produce products for up to 3 months a very long cycle for them to gain income. Store owners find it very hard to sell the product as they have to wait customer to come to the shop. Weve tried to export the product through third party, but then they forced the margin and mark up really high. Its been more than a year since we pivoted to ecommerce and the benefit is even better both for Ecodoe and also for society.
