Indonesia Antiques Tours
With its gorgeous beaches, luxury resorts, rice paddies and ancient temples Indonesia has far more to offer than just a destination as a vacation hot spot. Bali is one of the world’s best resources for global sourcing. Their antiques scene – and the abundance of offerings – is reminiscent of the Paris Flea Market but Indonesia offers more than just antiques. Whether you’re seeking a source for manufacturing your furniture line, wood and stone carvers, weavers, painters or gold and silversmiths Bali alone has the world’s greatest repository of high-level artisans in the world and at The Antiques Diva & Co we give you access to the best of them. Furniture – whether new or old – ranges from rustic and folk art to refined or cutting edge and contemporary in design. Textiles reign with batiks and ikats in heartbreakingly beautiful patterns. Fashion, jewelry and art de la table give island chic a new audience making the tribal mainstream. After assessing your antiquing and other design or fashion sourcing needs we will custom plan your Indonesia antiques tours and buying trips – helping to maximize your time and money by translating and negotiating on your behalf, and finally liaising you with an international shipper.
