Beginning
The roots of DEVIL'S TEAR go deep in the culture of the island of Bali
Bali is traditionally not only a place for vacationing and sunbathing, but also a global center of harmony, peace and inspiration where you can get centered and clear your head. In Bali you have local, ancient cultures intertwining with creative and talent people from all over the world, sharing in the unconquered beauty of nature – and it was in this mix that our idea was born. We decided to make not only a marketplace, but a space for self-expression, inspiration, and creation of a new worldview.

To create and
to understand yourself
BALI

This island is unique in its incredible ability to evoke the sleeping connection between nature and human souls, to motivate people to create, to conquer, to live.

Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country of the world. While the Islam is practiced by 90% of its population, the state religion of Bali is known as Balinese Hinduism – or Ahama Hindu Dharma – which fuses Buddhism and Hinduism with vibrant local traditions.
The inspiration
The roots of ancient culture
The entire island of Bali is one giant sanctuary where all houses are temples and all temples are houses, where ancient spirits and gods are talking to anyone who wants to listen.
THE ISLAND OF THOUSAND TEMPLES

For thousands of years, the Balinese civilization cherished and cultivated its breathtaking culture. These ancient traditions see a world where humankind is not separate from nature, and instructed people to find harmony in themselves and in the expansive world around them.

To this day, Balinese still have three official calendars – the first is the European calendar that came with the early Western explorers, and two other are lunar ones – and they are much more important to the Balinese. All the national celebrations, festivals and holidays are precisely timed to the Moon phases. And not only calendars are imbued with symbolism – it is hidden everywhere, in every small detail of Balinese lives: in patterns on the fabric, in countless sculptures of spirits and gods, even in the hand movements of traditional dancers.

BALI Handbook
"Bali is a floating sanctuary where all houses are temples and all temples are houses. There are mountain temples (pura bukit), sea temples (pura segara), genealogical temples, temples of deities of markets and seeds (pura melanting), lake temples, cave temples , temples-hospitals, temples-baths, temples dedicated to the deities of streams, lakes, trees and rocks. There are also private temples of aristocrats, royal "state" temples and temples of clans (pura dadia). Large and small, simple or covered with sophisticated groove, they are everywhere: in houses and yards, in markets, cemeteries and rice fields, on beaches, coastal rocks and deserted hilltops and peaks of mountains, deep in caves, inside the tangled roots of banyan trees. At the crossroads and in other dangerous places, temples are built in order to prevent accidents. Even at the intersections of the paths in the thick of the jungle incenses are burned in small sanctuaries, decorated with flowers, wrapped in leaves and brightly colored cloth."



Geniune Bali does not show itself in tourist attractions – it is too shy and precious to reveal itself to an untrained eye. However, if you stay there for a long time and try tenderly to understand its gorgeous culture, Bali will open to you and become an integral part of your life, your worldview, and your inspiration. Our company has visited many countries looking for such an authentic and vibrant place, and only in Bali we have found what we were looking for.
