“Even though this initiative is in the idea stage, I like that they are working with the university because it’s a great support system that will allow them to take this initiative to a new level. It will really help to facilitate positive relationships between professionals and the community.”
“What is unique about this initiative from past initiatives is that they have a way to store the dyes and have a variety of natural dyes. It will be important for the entrant to make sure that the market for this remains steady in Indonesia and that there is a really good structure around the artisan cooperative and the global structure, allowing materials to move.”
