Established in 2009, Asali Bali has an award-winning track record for contemporary bamboo construction, incorporating traditional vernacular values and design detailing. The Company, registered in Bali, Indonesia, grew from an earlier venture (2003) exporting Javanese and Balinese furniture made from bamboo and timber from sustainably managed plantation woodlands. Asali Bali is now an almost 100% carbon neutral business.
Their mission is to build engineered, large-scale, ambitiously designed bamboo constructions, within the framework of a professional, efficiently managed a company.
To develop and promote the bamboo construction industry by engaging:
- Highly skilled artisans from local communities, applying the vibrant yet traditional Balinese knowledge base which persists to the present.
- Engineered and cost-effective, value-for-money technical bamboo solutions ensuring project success.
- Proven sustainable and environmentally responsible, ecologically sound approaches to procurement, design, construction and aftercare
The office team is structured according to marketing, technical, production and administrative departments. Their production workshop is located in the village of Belega in Blahbatuh near Gianyar town, in the heart of Bali’s traditional bamboo craft area.
Based on the traditional framework we have formed specialized sub-teams within our construction department, dedicated to perfecting each stage and process, i.e. termite treatment, foundations, concrete interfacing, roofing, cladding and the specialized ‘Alang Alang’ (thatching).
