Snake and Ladder GameBalinese Traditional Art
Made Griyawan is a master of translating local tales of his culture into paintings that continue the long legacy of Batuan style. He created this original gameboard as a standalone piece of art which was then reproduced digitally on canvas. The game comes with animal tokens and dice made from bone, hand carved by Bali artisans.
Made Griyawan’s interpretation of Snakes and Ladders takes us into a underwater world filled with denizens of the deep, including sea snakes, sunfish, turtles and more. Roll the dice and travel up to the surface towards Bali’s magical volcanoes.
Eco side of the printer we use: Zalmon Fabric digital printing technology only requires 10% of the amount of water used compared to screen printing. Sometimes we forget how rare clean water is. Zalmon uses Inkjet Printing technology to save water, so the amount of water we need to print an item is only as much as the print motif or pattern on the fabric. Which uses far less water than previous printing technology. With Inkjet Printing, the amount of water needed is in accordance with the motif / pattern you want printed on the fabric.
We realize that there are still many contributions that we can make to the sustainability of the textile industry in Indonesia. We are committed to always developing our production technology, especially in increasing the efficiency of the production process, so that we can put more pressure on the use of natural resources. And also developing various types of new organic fabrics which of course remain environmentally friendly. All of Zalmon family members are 100% local from Indonesia. We craft a supply chain that focuses on the needs of each Zalmon family member, giving training and economic empowerment along the way.
