It's always an adventure visiting our factories around the globe. That's one of the things I love about the business we are in - the adventure of travel, meeting people, stepping outside your comfort zones and enjoying the sites aand smells of foreign lands. Experiencing the creative process first hand of designing a product , sourcing timber from plantations , watching the sublime skills of the creative artisans that sculpt and weave our furniture through to seeing the enjoyment of our customers experiencing the final product is a rewarding part of the job. Here are a few snaps of one of my trips to Indonesia in 2019 - back when we could travel freely. (Andrew Johnston - Founder of Satara)
