My mother was in charge of handicrafts in Bandarlange city, and I followed my mother's footsteps and my great interest in handicrafts. Handicrafts requires special people, many people are enthusiastic and fans of handicrafts, but they do not follow it as a job and economic activity because it is not economical.
In addition, this art and craft attracts people who are in love and interested, and therefore I have always looked at my work with love.

In the field of mat weaving, we also operate in the field of training, production and supply. As an entrepreneur and executive, we work together with these people, and if there are no artisans and artists, I will never succeed on my own, and this cycle will stop moving.
