A Message from the Founders
16 years ago two Canadian girls traveled to Bali. Inspired by the happiness and calm nature of the Indonesian people, we left our corporate jobs to seek a more balanced lifestyle.
That’s when the BauXo brand was born.
We’re so proud to say that we’ve built an accessories brand that not only supports the local community but has provided us with the most challenging, amazing and fulfilling experiences.
We hope our story will serve as a reminder
to chase your dreams,
do the things people tell you can’t be done
and follow your heart.
Watch how we do what we do.
What does BauXo mean?
Although some people pass it off as a quirky name for a unique jewelry brand, BauXo’s history resides in Bali, Indonesia. After all, that is where the original three met in 2003, and where the idea for the company was born.
BauXo, (pronounced box-o) comes from the Indonesian word for meatball – Bakso! This traditional Indonesian fare is commonly served in a soup, sold from a street cart, and costs around 90 cents Canadian per bowl. Diana and Jeneen met Hari Yono, a Javanese designer, in front of a Bakso cart and decided to blend their experiences to create an accessories company called BauXo.
Have you ever tried Bakso? Have you ever been to Bali? Perhaps it is time to pick up and do both. Buy that plane ticket. Experience something incredible. Insist on happiness. And don’t forget to visit our flagship store in Echo Beach while you’re there!
Charity + Passions
Our company was formed through a collective passion for life.
That passion is what inspires our designs, allows us to experiment each day, and keeps us moving forward in our business. We thrive on inspirational quotes, and incorporate the lessons we’ve learned throughout our personal and professional lives.
In a partnership with Holt Renfrew and their H Project, we are currently supporting The Bali Children's Project, a charity that provides education to Bali's Children to break the cycle of poverty.
