Agus and Meili are relatively new to Buckstone having just moved from Java to Bali, Indonesia. This duo is wonderful to work with because they are organized and very talented. They design many of our wooden signs and magnets.
At Buckstone, we enjoy working with spirited entrepreneurial women and no one is harder working than Angii. Her team of 40 artisans work hard at producing our teak root bowls, cheese trays, cutting boards, and shelves. Buckstone INC has been working with Angii for over 10 years and we look forward to many more!
Dayu has been working with Buckstone for over 20 years! The beauty of working directly with our artisans is that work feels more like a lifestyle for us. It's not always about business but getting to know and love the artists as well as being a part of each other's lives. Dayu and her amazing team create all our cushions, flags, notebooks, gift boxes - anything with fabric!
We have been working with Made and his team of 30 artists for more than 12 years. They work hard to hand carve, screen print, and hand paint custom artwork for many of our wooden signs and paddles.
It's always a delight to spend time with Putu. The art of glass blowing is such a magical one! All of our slump glass vases on teak wood have been hand blown by Putu and his team of talented artists.
Twenty-five years ago, Buckstone started working with Wayan's mother and over the years, Wayan grew into a clever, hard-working young man. You can see his talent in every single one of our very popular loons that he has hand carved and painted. He is now starting to take over the family business and we have the great fortune to work directly with Wayan and his wife.

The Bean Ladies
The Bean Ladies was founded in 1998 by twin sisters Julie Ryder and Jamie Miles. Having children in competitive sports and fundraising with unhealthy high-fat high sugar foods, led them to create a healthier product to raise team funds. They packaged their family's recipe for Homestyle Hearty Bean Soup and the rest is history!
Bone Suckin' Sauce
Phil Ford, a real estate appraiser and father of four in Raleigh, North Carolina, developed his sauce around 1987 while trying to copy his mother's recipe for a western North Carolina-style barbecue sauce. The resulting fat-free, fragrant blend includes: tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, honey, molasses, mustard, horseradish, lemon juice, onions, garlic, peppers, natural hickory smoke, natural spices and salt. All Bone Suckin products are gluten free, non GMO, dairy free and kosher.
