Rote is an island off the coast of Indonesia, north of Australia and just southwest of Timor with rolling hills of gold and palm trees of emerald green. The island straddles the Savu and Timor seas and is home to local artisans dedicated to upholding Rote's traditions in the creative arts.
A group of enterprising practitioners known as the Indigo Foundation has partnered with the Lua Lemba Education and Community Development Foundation in Nemberala Village to increase opportunities for the young people of Rote Island. Their mission is to ensure the investment of international aid is distributed directly to community initiatives to enhance the overall quality of life.
The Muses of Ornate Reverie support the indigo foundation's mission to provide resources and tools to achieve sustainable living around the world, and most importantly in their homeland of Indonesia. They are committed to donating 30% of all net proceeds from Ornate Reverie's sales to indigo's initiatives on Rote Island.
