Who We Are
Novum Crafts is a collection of handmade artworks created by local gifted artists in the heart of Bali. We handcraft Indian Headdresses, carved animal skulls, and accessories inspired by the Native American culture as modest adaptations of the iconic ethos. It started with a mere fascination for the native arts that Bali indigenous craftsmen were urged to recreate cultural emblems - such as dreamcatchers, turquoise jewelry, and the infamous Indian Headdress – to celebrate a living piece of history.
Why Indian Headdress?
We grew up believing that Native Americans and their beautiful tradition are worth the pages of our history books, the walls of national museums, and every bit of our respect. Because it’s not just a handsome design but more of an illustration of a towering history. When we see an Indian headdress, we taste a gist of the peoples’ arts. It gives off a pure vibe, like being closer to natural matter - wind, fire, mud, trees, and everything un-void. It takes us to a whole new plane of awe and beauty.
The Artists Behind Novum Crafts
Unfortunately, most local artists cannot blend passion and profession as they are often not recognized for their talent. Novum Crafts recognizes their great potential and the pleasure their work could bring to others. And so, by paying these artists fair wages, enough to support their entire families, they now have a chance in life; to follow through with their real passions. At the same time, art connoisseurs and even ordinary people from around the world are thrilled to own one of these marvelous replicas of centuries-old tradition.
