A few weeks ago I went to Tampaksiring, visiting the factory of Huka Huka Steel & Silver, organic piercing.
Huka Huka has shops in Legian/Kuta and Tampaksiring. They sell organic piercings and jewelry made from steel, silver, bone, horn and wood. Also carved skulls from buffalo’s, cows and goats are for sale. Some people don’t like it but many people do. In Tampaksiring you’ll find many shops selling this kind of skulls and many designers buy small skulls made from bone and horn for fashion and jewelry because it is very popular now a days. The people of Tampaksiring are very good in carving.
Several times I visited the shop in Legian to order some jewelry. Gusti Alit Ardana, the owner of the shop told me about the factory in Tampaksiring. I asked him if it was possible to visit the factory because I love to see craftsmen at work while creating all these beautiful pieces by hand.
It was great to see the Huka Huka factory and Tampaksiring is also a very nice village to visit.
If you are in Legian or Tampaksiring and interested in some nicely shaped piece of steel, silver, bone, horn or wood don’t miss the Huka Huka stores.
You’ll find Huka Huka Steel & Silver, organic piercing in Jl. Legian Kaja, no. 452, Legian/Kuta and in Jl. Astina Pura Selatan Br. Kelodan, Tampaksiring.
