“It’s a good place to have a small workshop for high-end products.”
Niluh Djelantik, a cobbler, agrees. Her flagship boutique stands out on the congested streets of Seminyak, Bali’s upscale beach resort. It is splashed with a 12-foot-high silhouette of a giant red stiletto. Such showy signage is a tip-off to the glamorous shoes inside. Except for an overstuffed golden sofa, the entire store is painted charcoal, an ideal backdrop to showcase her glittery, ornate designs; both Uma Thurman and Gisele Bundchen are fans. Every shoe is made on the island in Ms. Djelantik’s own 15,000-square-foot, 28-person workshop; her staff takes such pride in craftsmanship that one cobbler is notorious for noting and recording exactly which pair of shoes he makes. Another bonus of craftsmen on call, Bali-style: Most shoes are repaired for free, including new leathers, as many times as a customer needs and bespoke styles can easily be produced per a customer’s specifications.
Not a bad spot for vacation shopping."
