What is Joglo Ayu Tenan?
Joglo Ayu Tenan is a co-working space for the jewelry and art fabric community in Indonesia. With its location in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, a city highly regarded as being rich in culture and art, this has allowed Joglo Ayu Tenan to contribute in giving positive impact towards the local society and Indonesia.
With Mrs. Yayuk Sukandan’s background in pharmacy, she realized that respecting nature was necessary when creating something, thus inspiring the founder of Joglo Ayu Tenan to develop eco-friendly art fabric. As a result, in 2009, Joglo Ayu Tenan officially established itself as a jewelry making space with the name Ayu Tenan Gallery. In May 2016, it further expanded to include art fabrics.
