Our bahalo vision


Each piece is uniquely created on this island! Therefore slight differences may occur during the making process!


Made of recycled & reprocessed cotton waste or recycled plastic polyester leftovers of the fast fashion industry. Treat these materials with love. 


Our aim is to create impact in all areas. Each piece is created with love by BaliLife Street Kids Centre & Woman Workshop. 


hard material products

Our paradise island Bali is struggling with an enormous plastic problem just like the rest of Indonesia and basically the rest of the world.

And yet this raw material is actually so reusable! Therefore it was clear to us that we wanted to find a solution to bring this raw material back to life in new products. The plastic comes directly from the ocean or from the adjacent rivers and is collected, cleaned, shredded and recycled before they are becoming new products.  

Together with norm:al living our products are 100% made from this recycled plastic in the small workshop of the founder Ganesha and his incredible team. If you wanna learn more how a recycled plastic product is made check out their team here: https://www.makeitnormal.co

soft material products

Another problem we are facing especially in Indonesia is the fast fashion industry. Billions of goods are produced for a minimum price each second and are thrown away the next.

We are happy to cooperate with PABLE LIVING who found a way of using cotton waste to woven into new fabrics. They are reprocessed and spinned back into new yarn. Usually the bottom part of cotton plants is not used as it is hard to process and clean and therefore becomes waste. This part is saved and upcycled within their process. All cotton material come directly from Indonesia. If you want learn more check out Pable Living here: https://pableliving.com

For the sake of the environment we manufacture our collection also only on request. Therefore the delivery time of our products is up to two weeks. Are you in a hurry? Then just write us and we find a solution.


What would be a sustainable impact if we didn't also care about those who produce it? What often gets lost in the current sustainable discussion are the conditions for the people behind it. That's why it was clear to us that we didn't just want to find a team that reflects our values and ideas, but above all partners with whom we could build something in the long term and who would benefit from us as much as we would from their passionated work.

That’s why we teamed up with the BaliLife Kids Centre & Woman Workshop who help to stop children from begging on the streets by empowering the children and their parents through education and work opportunities. The Bali Life Women’s Workshop is a place the women can come and make handicrafts and in turn the mothers are paid a wage. Every day a woman can work is a day her children don’t have to go beg on the streets. If you want to know more or donate to the centre check it out here: https://www.balilife.org

These woman are creating with unbelievable dedication every single Bahalo piece and that although they don't have a professional background. Therefore slight differences may occur during the making process. Each of our product is handmade with a lot of love and each time uniquely created. We don’t support fast industrial goods, but stand for valuable handicraft.


We also make sure our shipping packaging meets the highest sustainability standards. We challenge our processes to get better every day. we're not perfect, but we're honest, transparent and always open to feedback!

So feel free to write us your ideas and comments here so we can create even better products for you!

“Be imperfectly zero waste. Be imperfectly vegan. Be imperfectly sustainable. Because small conscious changes are better than none at all!”

I am a firm believer that big changes start in small ways. We can all make a huge impact within our own lives and for everyone around us with our daily actions and decisions. Let's try to preserve our beautiful planet together and start collaborating instead of comparing!
