Bekraf & 8 Indonesian Designers Take New York

Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (Bekraf), or the Creative Economy Agency, has been tasked by the President of Indonesia Joko Widodo himself to oversee the economic growth of the country’s creative industry. Bekraf formulates strategies to showcase Indonesia’s best creative works that would eventually put Indonesia on the global creative map.






Loved by many, revered by plenty, Jenggala Keramik is a legacy name 
when it comes to fine ceramic ware. the brand’s attention to quality and design has endured since its inception in 1976, allowing it to mature into a highly sought- after destination for tourists in Bali.

Jenggala caters to both small scale and larger retail audiences, including five- star hotels and restaurants in Indonesia and abroad. Choose from a whopping total of over 3000 designs and 200 glaze finishes, with offerings that span from kitchenware, drinkware, artworks, vases, bathroom accessories, and more.


Among those that Jenggala will be showcasing at NY Now is the Coffee Collection, an understated coffee cup and saucer set with matching signature glazes. The finishing coat gives a textural sensation in the palms of the coffee drinkers, with thick walls that have been engineered to maintain the warmth of the coffee brew and enhance its taste.

The Coffee Collection was designed by one of Jenggala’s 150 designers, Sasanti Puri Ardini, who also oversaw the work of her fellow designers. The Classic Asian set, the Western Classic, and the Barefoot Plate set, are three ceramic tableware collections that will be exhibited in New York alongside the Coffee Collection.


The array of tableware extends to Modern kendi, a contemporary rendition of the Indonesian terracotta-drinking vessel. Designed by Jesika Tirtanimala, kendi was awarded the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicraft
 2010 for its authenticity, innovation
and marketability, and also for being environmentally responsible. Made of ceramic and wood, kendi is to be held by its detachable neck and tilted to pour out its contents through its spout.

Jenggala will also put their Sokasi candles on display. The colourful ceramics enclosing the candles were inspired by the eponymous woven baskets used by Balinese to carry offerings during religious rituals. The natural beeswax blend candles inside come in four different feminine scents. Jenggala enhances your shared spaces
at home and makes thoughtful gifts. Discerning buyers will appreciate that the brand’s quality is Iso-2009-certified since 2012. find out more about Jenggala at
