Blue Hand was founded by husband and wife team, Tracy Tang and Arnie Cullipher in 1994, introduced to the art of batiking while backpacking in Bali. For almost a decade, Tracy and Arnie lived in Bali. Learning to speak Indonesian , enabled them to empower artisans to design batik for market opportunities like Ten Thousand Villages.
