Begin in Bali

In Bali there is a philosophy called “Gotong Royong” it roughly translates to “Working together for the benefit of the whole.” That phrase is applied to so much of life on the island where communal harmony is part of the culture and the island’s essence. You see it everywhere; people build houses together, weave baskets and mats together, and celebrate together. Such a big part of Bali’s beauty is the love the people have for one another. The weaving of the Classic Chain reflects this. This working together - carefully, meticulously – to create something so incredibly beautiful. This is the crux of the island, the heart of John Hardy and why we begin our journey at home.
