I would like to welcome you to our community and hope you enjoy the stories and will follow along on our journey to connect our family culture to our everyday lives . We are Lisa, Wayan, Sinta (10), Sarina (9) Satianna (7). Currently we live in Portland, Oregon and are owners of Spicy Bambu,inc. a small business offering batiked clothing , handicrafts, jewelry and more all imported from Bali, Indonesia. Our humble shop comes alive on weekends where it is located by the Skidmore and Saturday Market.
I became the owner in 1996 where I took over an existing business and thought that importing would be as easy as faxing an order to Bali, and they would ship the order to me. Boy was I wrong. We almost went bankrupt the first year! Over the 20 years of designing and retailing women’s clothing, I have learned a lot , and measured my success in different ways. My passion now is to bring in fabulous wear made from amazing batiked fabrics and offer a market for all women.
We have a story, a mission and a lot to share about our unique products and the connection with the amazing Balinese people.
