One-stop source for handicraft products to cut costs
Feb '09
A business club, idea of Malaysian born Mr Jamal Mohammad Amin, is all set to lower the cost of handicrafts sourced by Malaysian handicraft wholesale traders by as much as 30 percent. The Jakarta Business Leisure Club (JBLC) will help these traders by charging a small fee.

The club will be a one-stop centre for Malaysian handicraft businessmen, to source, find, evaluate and order the handicraft products directly from the small and big handicraft manufacturers of Indonesia.

These wholesale traders in turn have the facility to display these products at the exhibition area within the JBLC office premises, which was officially inaugurated on Monday by Mr Amin and sell there arts and crafts to retail traders in Malaysia.

The main reason for the lowered cost was due to the fact that, JBLC will be in direct touch with the manufacturers of handicraft products in Indonesia, eliminating the need for agents and middle men who cornered a large chunk of profits.

The Malaysian traders will now not have to go in search of handicraft products all over Indonesia as the Centre had tied up with most of the reputed manufacturers, with an assurance of quality too, which will also mean lower custom hassles while importing these products.

Handicraft products sourced from JBLF will be priced lower than those prevailing in the local wholesale handcraft markets of Malaysia. The products which can be imported are scarves, leather shoes, batik, veils, slippers, jackets and souvenir products.
