About our Artist: 'I'm Farida Ridwan and I was born in East Java in 1950. When I was 18, I began helping my mom create batik prints and sell them in the villages. I also enjoyed crafting my own bags from a young age, and began making my own designs. My mother would tell me, 'We have our own hands. Don't rely on other people's hands, even though we sometimes need to hold each other to succeed. We women have to stand on our own. We have to take responsibility of our own lives. We can't depend only on our husbands.' After my husband retired in 2005, I began focusing on crafting batik handbags. In my opinion, when there is a will, there will always be a way.
