About Us

Archipelago is a family run wholesale business that specializes in bespoke designs and niche products.  The business was founded in 1989 by previous owners Colin and Nancy Hill.  The name originates from the fact that most of our products are hand made in Bali, Indonesia and Indonesia is the largest Archipelago in the world.  Archipelago means chain of islands.

We work with 3 different villages in Bali all highly skilled carvers and painters.  All our Indonesian products are produced under fair trading conditions to benefit the village community.  The products are environmentally friendly, using lead free paints and local replaceable softwoods.

All our products are designed in the UK by British artists for Archipelago.
