Changes to the team

We were delighted to welcome Alma to the team last month. Alma joins the team as Sales Exectutive to replace Puteri who has sadly left us and returned to her home town Jakarta. Alma brings with her many years experience in the hospitality world and will be taking over all of Puteri's accounts. We take this opportunity to wish her all the very best in her new role.

Made by hand in small batches, these pure vegetable soaps are free from petroleum additives, fillers, animal by-products and artificial colour. Each soap can be customised with logos, motifs, scents and packaging for a personalised presentation.

Packagaing now available in poly olefin plastic shrink wrap - great for those looking for an eco-friendly option as this is biodegradeable and non-toxic.

End of year holidays

The end of this year will bring many public holidays as our Balinese friends prepare to celebrate Galungan & Kuningan in the first two weeks of December, and our Christian crew will be on leave from the 18th December through to the 3rd January 2011

During this time there will be many customs and port closures as well as limited staff in our office and factory. If you have any requirements for the Christmas/New Year period now is the time to start ordering so as to avoid any delays over this time.
