1970: Indonesia comes to Canada

by LIZA T WAJONG 09 Mar 2023

As an ecommerce store specializing in Indonesian products, we often get asked how these wonderful items made their way to Canada. It's a story that we're proud to share, as it's a testament to the rich cultural exchange that has taken place between Indonesia and Canada over the years.

It all started in the early 1900s when Indonesia was still a Dutch colony known as the Dutch East Indies. At that time, many Indonesians worked in the plantation industry, producing crops such as coffee, tea, rubber, and tobacco that were exported to Europe and North America. This led to the introduction of Indonesian products to the global market, including Canada.

Fast forward to the 1960s and 70s, when Canada was experiencing a surge of interest in international products and cultural exchange. Indonesian textiles and crafts, in particular, caught the attention of Canadian buyers who were drawn to their unique designs and high-quality craftsmanship.

The popularity of Indonesian products in Canada continued to grow, and by the 1990s, Indonesian furniture, batik textiles, and accessories had become a staple in many Canadian homes and boutiques.

Today, Indonesian products can be found in many parts of Canada, thanks to the efforts of Indonesian-Canadian entrepreneurs and importers who have brought these wonderful items to Canadian markets. In addition, Canadian tourists and travelers to Indonesia have also discovered and brought back these unique products, sharing their love for Indonesian culture with their friends and families back home.

As an ecommerce store specializing in Indonesian products, we're proud to continue this tradition of cultural exchange by making these wonderful items easily accessible to Canadians. Our goal is to not only offer unique and high-quality Indonesian products, but also to share the rich culture and heritage behind each item with our customers.

We hope that through our collection of Indonesian products, we can continue to foster a deeper appreciation and understanding of Indonesia's rich cultural heritage, and its connection to Canada.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
