Sylvie Fleury used to sell furniture on furniture fairs and discovered the quality of Indonesian furniture. By and large, this quality comes from the incredible expertise of its artisanal manpower. Then, she decided to leave France and live in Jepara. Before leaving France, she met one of the biggest wholesalers of decorative items in France. Together, they established a very successful, honest, and respectful partnership, which is still the the main power of PIJAR SUKMA.
Working as an agent for French partners and taking care of the production, Sylvie faced challenges and few difficulties with local suppliers to fulfill the order of the partners. Then, the decision came to create her own factory. Like this, she could control 100% of the production process.
The establishment of PIJAR SUKMA which literally means ‘SPARK of the SOUL’. The small furniture factory was set up in Bandengan, a small village in the corner of Jepara on 2000 m2 land.
In a few years, with the only partnership of the French wholesaler, the production of our classic painted items went up to 2HC in a week. Over 100HC have been sent this year.
The Company welcomed a new Family Member, Mr. Baptiste V. He joined the company as the General Manager of Pijar Sukma. This young and smart entrepreneur brought new spirit to PIJAR SUKMA during a challenging year. He offered a lot of new solutions and innovations on creating and developing great furniture products. This duo, Sylvie and Baptiste, has rapidly created a very close and successful partnership.
