ABOUT US

Meeka designs have been around since 1987. I started this company after an extended backpacking journey around Southeast Asia. This trip brought me to Bali and I instantly fell in love with the people, culture, artistic talent and cottage industry I found there. Over the last 30 years, I’ve worked as a manufacturing agent for other companies, owned retail stores, designed slippers, sandals, clothing, gifts, and imported furniture.

Even though international trade has changed dramatically, and it is tough to be competitive in the world market, I have remained true to the island I love. Bali is magical and the people there are now my family. I am fortunate to be able to continue designing and manufacturing goods utilizing the cottage industry system and implementing fair trade practice

We offer a fine selection of unique products and offer outstanding customer service. We look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions. Our sandals have become synonymous with comfort. I know once you’ve tried our sandals, you’ll be eager to try some of our other products.

In this latest chapter of the journey, I have begun to work as a writer and currently selling off the last of my inventory. It's still difficult to say the words, "I'm closing the sandal business." But my daughter graduates college next year and she grew up in Bali and wants to go back. So who knows, maybe a new chapter will begin.
