Murni’s Exhibitions

Murni’s Exhibitions have mostly been at the prestigious and highly vetted San Francisco Arts of Pacific Asia and Tribal & Textile Arts Shows.

Murni was one of the first in Ubud, Bali to have a proper gallery of textiles, tribal jewelry, antiques and other ethnic pieces. She started her shop at the same time as her famous restaurant, Murni’s Warung, in 1974.

She is Balinese and travels extensively in Asia searching out rare and unusual pieces, specializing in Indonesian textiles, jewelry and ceremonial objects . Her sources are the best. She is still the first person that dealers generally visit when they come to Bali.

Many of her pieces are of museum quality.
