OUR HISTORY – A NOTE FROM LOTUSTRADERS DESIGNER, ANNIE

I have been in the garment business, manufacturing in Bali on and off for over 30 years on and off. It gives me great pleasure to be able to offer these unique items from Bali at wholesale prices directly to you.
My label is LotusTraders, I produce these unique and original designs especially for customers in Misses to Plus Sizes.
Please note: Many of my garments are 'batiked'. This is a completely handmade process.
A LITTLE HISTORY –
It all started with my first trip to Bali in my early twenties... this would prove to be the start of a career that has spanned over 30 years. I started designing clothes for Canadian and American women and have never thought to look back. After many years of travelling back and forth to Bali and numerous collections later... production came to a sudden stop. I found out that I had come down with an illness called CFS.( my Dr now calls a Mycoplasma) I spent many years in search of a remedy & nine solid years in bed. As my health returned and my body finally caught up, [there is a book in there yet to write] I was eager to start where I had left off. I packed my suitcases, and with only a small amount of money left after the years of forced unemployment & I boarded a plane to Bali. It was there that I basked in Bali's light for some 12 years. During that time I managed to sprout 3 shops, my own factory, showroom and a Balinese lifestyle I will cherish in memory always. After the Bali Bombing I lost the stores and left Bali for a time.
After a few years spent in the US and Canada thankfully I have been able to return to this beautiful Island, Bali, and begin a new chapter.
Just to give you a little more background:
Re my label, I named 'lotustraders' because I like what the lotus symbolises in Eastern thought. I am also fond of traders because a part of me thinks I'd have loved being a part of the caravans that traded on the silk road of Asia long, long ago.
I'm also a great fan of OS (one size in both misses and plus) as you can see and easy to wear clothes for women. I don't like wearing clothing that is too form fitting myself. I prefer flowing feminine clothes that drape the body and flatter. So I hope you enjoy...
Through your purchases you are also allowing me to keep pulling out my colour swatches and pen, and because for me to be able to create is akin to breathing, I cannot thank you enough!
I will continue to bring you as much variety of colour, texture and style in our clothes as my imagination will take me.
On a final note... Let me introduce the other key parts of my team. My daughter Lucy helps do correspondence from time to time as well as poses for many of the beautiful modelling shots. She is the beauty with the blonde hair. And my other daughter Daya... yes, she's one of the beautiful models you see for our products with the long dark curly hair. Daya is currently in Vancouver BC. Also my friends in Bali pose as stunning models, Monica, Karlee, Carolina, showing off my clothing beautifully.
Last but not least, we have some amazingly beautiful Balinese and Javanese people involved that are truly a joy in my life to work with:
Fitri heads up the role of production with her brillant team of cutters, sewers and checkers. I have worded with Fitri for many years and can trust her to produce the quality we wish to share with you. Wayan is my right arm in shipping, organization, correspondance, bookeeping etc.
Thank you for listening... and please enjoy.

    my beautiful daughter Daya who has given Lotustraders clothing some of its best modelling pictures. Daya lives in Vancouver so I dont get the opportunity to photograph her often enough, but i try to get her out to bali a couple of times a year.

Production partners

  • Fitri Aryani/ PT DAYA DEWATA BALI

    Denpasar, Indonesia

    Fitri and i have worked together for many years. Without her expertise in production, her ability to control such a wide variety of styles in so many varied prints and solids i would not be able to offer such a wide variety of styles.
