Vision: "Tarum is eager to realize the production and process of environmentally friendly, sustainable, unique creations, with added value and local content in terms of both process and materials for products to be found in local and international markets."
Tarum's early concept came about with Bapak Made's concern about the many synthetic colors used in Bali, coming from outside of Indonesia and the resulting negative impact of the process waste on Bali's environment and people. In 1998, Tarum found the idea to make the creation and process using coloring from natural dyes.
From there, they collected data and resources for reference, both from Bali and from outside Bali.
Bapak Made and his expanding local team soon realized that they needed to be flexible to meet the varied demand of buyers who were both supporting the Tarum initiative and wanting new colors and products. They realized that they could not survive by the old modes of production, where there were many drawbacks in terms of processing time and high price and with a limited variety of products, colors and creations.
Tarum then tried to find a way to accommodate and develop for the needs of buyers from outside Indonesia and within Indonesia. After several years of trying, in 2001, they found new source materials for the process of natural colors.
They started to use the leaves as a colorsuch as indigo from tarum leaf, red from secang wood, yellow from mango leaf, brown from mahogany leaf, black from ketapang leaf and many more. Some of the advantages to using leaves as a coloring agent are:
Preparation of the materials include gathering, drying and cooking leaves to create dye extracts, usually 4-5 hours per batch.
Now Tarum has its own garden in Tampaksiring to produce natural materials for dyeing, such as wood, leaves, fruits and flowers.
"Currently Tarum has made more than 500 colors of various materials leaves."
Tarum is promoting buyer / partner employment with the concept of "Green" environmentally friendly in marketing its products. This will create a new market and a different approach.
Tarum's process and commitment to environmental responsible processing and dying is a longer and more expensive process and may result in dye batch variances. These matters are accepted and appreciated by Tarum's growing international audience of ‘Green' buyers and wholesalers.
Tarum also provides a one-day on-site course. Tarum will teach you to selecting leaves for coloring, drying and cooking the leaves, dyeing, and weaving. Just the way Tarum does it.
Tarum's team of 25 people are from the Blahbatuh village where Tarum is located and other area of Bali, and from Sumbawa.
For 2016, production capacity per year is:
Capacity may be influenced by weather conditions. Tarum will be expanding their facilities in near future to accommodate more production and orders.
Today, Tarum's market in Bali includes the Tarum showroom/factory and a number of retail locations
