Lasmanu is the son of a silversmith. Born in 1953, he grew up learning about the silver business. Since he was a teenager he joined his family’s company and finally founded his own business. His biggest wishes are to prove and improve his skills and to provide a good financial situation for his family.
In 1967 Sampan was born in Kotagede. His family’s poor economic situation did not allow him to finish school and made him start working in handicraft as a teenager. Believing in his skills, he founded his own business. His dream is to improve the overall situation of the craftsmen in Kotagede and to keep the tradition of the silversmith alive.
