Laura Bellows -- Designer & Owner of JUL
Laura Bellows was trained as an anthropologist at the University of Virginia, earning her PhD in cultural anthropology in 2003 based on two years of field research in Bali, Indonesia. This research-adventure in Bali allowed her to develop relationships with the people and the culture that have led to her founding of JUL in 2007.
Artisans in Indonesia
We work with skilled metal and wood-workers in Indonesia. We give them our custom designs for execution and then work closely and collaboratively to develop these pieces into JUL products. The artisans we work with establish their own prices for each piece we contract with them to make. We do not try to bargain their prices lower. Instead, we week to foster a relationship of mutual respect in which our artisans know we value their work and they are able to earn a living wage to support their families. In return, they strive to make the best possible product for us. We have worked with many of our artisans for over 7 years, since JUL launched.
