The idea for BauXo was born when two Canadian women, Jeneen Gacek & Diana DeLuca, decided to take a sabbatical from their corporate lives and back-pack through Southeast Asia. On a beach in Bali, Indonesia they met Javanese designer Hariyono and instantly fell in love with his work.   This energetic trio soon discovered they shared a mutual passion for life and for fashion.  With their blend of professional backgrounds, cultures and characters, they joined together and turned their entrepreneurial dreams into reality.  Collaboratively, the BauXo partners share devotion to several very inspirational guiding principles, including their creation of distinct, versatile pieces from durable materials, that develop character with wear.   To meaningfully contribute to the Indonesian community by providing opportunities; excellent working conditions, fair wages and education; they pay attention to detail in all aspects of business, and they strive to ensure that fun and passion are always a part of daily life.
