PT Binkomara Huma / Bin House
CEO Josephine Komara
My parents were dynamic people. My mother was a type of a person who says what she wants to say clearly. My father also had the same personality. I grew up in a family in which I could say what I wanted to say. I used to play house with my friends when I was a child, so I wanted to become an ordinary housewife. I was also infatuated with the idea of becoming a firefighter. I wanted to make a hole between the first and second floors of my house and go up and down like a firefighter.
All I am doing is selling goods. This business is not something I created. It’s something that became as I went with the flow. I established my company after my friend told me it should be about time for me to establish one.
I began everything by myself. In time, I hired a maid and a driver, but I started with me. I was very happy when I sold the first fabric. Back then, there were many companies that gathered craftsmen and did the same thing, but I was the only one who entered the business of modern fashion retailing.
My goal is to create a type of fabric that Indonesia can be proud of. There are already many such fabrics, but I want to create something that can become an iconic brand.
