CV Tarum Bali Sejahtera Natural Production - Bali
Last modified: 2018-03-05 20:20:20

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 Products

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:

  • Do not need to cut or kill the trees, harvesting multiple times
  • Trees benefit from pruning reducing leaves during some periods of time
  • Relatively easy to find, cultivate or can be in cooperation with farmers (for example)
  • Does not compete with food needs
  • Extracts are easy to make
  • Leaf waste is easily composted and returned to the soil
  • Raw material are a sustainable supply and can readily be replanted

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.
