I’ve been interested in Jenggala ceramics since my first visit to Bali, wherein my husband and I visited their outlet store in Jl. Sunset. Then I found them too expensive because the crazy cheap shopping in Manila was still fresh in my mind. My interest was renewed when I read this post on Chuzai Living – I wanted the Jenggala milk carton creamer in white. I went to this seller and the Kemang branch of Jenggala Ceramics. They didn’t have it in white (they did have it in cow print) and the prices were expensive (It’s cheaper in the Uluwatu factory for sure). So last week in Bali I went to their factory and showroom in Uluwatu. It was worth the trip!
After 2 years of drooling, I finally got a nice tea set and salt and pepper bowls. Unfortunately the sets for their popular white/cream line were not complete so I just mixed and matched. They had the white version of the Milk Carton Creamer… but guess what?! I didn’t buy it! =) I realized that the the opening was so small, it will be hard to clean! I try to balance out practicality and aesthetics so I went for the one with a wide opening below.
- Sugar bowl with wooden cover Rp 70,000 or 7 USD est.
- Wooden spoon Rp 40,000 or 4 USD est.
- Large milk jug Rp 90,000 or 9 USD est.
- Kendy Teapot Rp 330,000 or 33 USD est.*
- Tray or Rectangular plate with lines motif (34.5 x 14.5 x 2 cm) Rp 120,000 or 12 USD est.
For the Salt and Pepper Bowls I bought the wooden tray it came with but I also bought a bigger the lines motif ceramic tray, because I wanted to buy a toothpick holder. Since they were all out except for 2 designs that didn’t fit with the set, I just made sure I had another option. I’ll visit Jenggala Kemang soon to check out the toothpick holders.
- Lines Motif tray small Rp 80,000 or 8 USD est.
- Salt and Pepper pots (they called it small curry dishes) 2pcs x 60,000 = Rp 120,000 or 12 USD est.
- Wood base 50,000 or 5 USD est.
- Salt & pepper spoons 2pcs x 20,000 = Rp 40,000 or 4 USD est.
MORE THAN JUST CERAMICS
AWARD WINNING DESIGN
Interesting to note that the KENDI COLLECTION won the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts in Southeast Asia 2010. It is one of the 19 products awarded. Jenggala Ceramics has the distinction of having 2 out of the 19 winners. The other product is the most beautiful lunch box I’ve ever seen (it’s environmentally friendly too!) the RANTANG.

Wow, I love the design!!! Absolutely beautiful! What a great find! I love what you got. I would loooooove to have it myself, too. The combination of the ceramics and wood is very chic. Thanks for the information. I would love to go to the store as well as the outlet (thanks for this, too!) next time I have a chance to visit Bali. I might take a loot at their store in Kemang since I don’t know when will be the next time we get to go visit.
You are most welcome Kaho! Did you know that Japan is Jenggala’s biggest market? It’s definitely so YOU! =) I went to the Kemang store for the toothpick holder but they have very little stock (compared to the factory showroom where you will absolutely go ga-ga!) so I will be going back on August 15 when they have new stock. They are also pricier than the Uluwatu store, but still worth checking out! Let’s go!? =)
That’s.. that’s.. ARGH! The store in Kemang is so expensive! Ah thanks for the heads up, will definitely have to visit the one in Bali 🙂
Yes it is and it’s SO not complete. I just checked and they barely have complete collections. You will absolutely die in Jenggala Uluwatu! I’ve also been to the outlet stores in Sunset and Sanur. They have limited but even cheaper stuff – just check the defects. Some for me were passable so I went ahead and got a tray and 4 tea cups for my tea pot at Sanur. =) Enjoy!
The thing I’m worried about is transporting it all back to Jakarta :p I have a wishlist of Jenggala’s stuffs -__-“
They wrap it with lots of thick brown paper. What I did is just empty my carry-on trolley and then placed my loot in there with some clothes for more cushioning. I didn’t check it in. BUT… if you buy A LOT then they have boxes you can purchase and they will pack it well for you.
Thank you for posting the prices of these pieces! It’s great to know what I may encounter on my travels to Bali
You are most welcome Cynthia. Enjoy exploring Bali and all it’s beautiful culture, crafts and food!
