The RWA BHINEDA Story

In Bali we believe that everything in the universe exists as a duality, and that this duality in turn brings balance to the universe. We call this concept Rwa bhineda, and it is our very own concept of yin and yang. We too use the metaphor of black and white, with black symbolizing evil, and white symbolizing good.

Rwa bhineda is embedded so deep into Balinese life, it is part of the our way of life and growing up: do not wallow too long in despair for there will be joy to even it out, balance will always come.

To symbolize rwa bhineda in everyday life, the Balinese often use the metaphor of black and white. Black symbolizes evil while white symbolizes good. You might have noticed most attributes in Bali, especially ceremonial fabrics, have a black and white chessboard-like pattern. That’s just how the Balinese remember rwa bhineda.

We forged the "Rwa bhineda" with lava from volcanoes and mother of pearl from the ocean. It is simple but elegant white and black bracelet, to bring you the same balance in your everyday life.
