Elora Hardy – Creating Sustainable Bamboo Architecture In Bali.
Elora Hardy (IG: @eloradora) is the Founder and Creative Director of IBUKU. Raised on the beautiful island of Bali, Elora was inspired by the highly skilled local craftsmen as well as by the talented jewelry designs of her parents.
She spent 14 years of her young adult life in the United States, where she received a degree in fine arts and went on to New York City to design prints for Donna Karan that would walk the world’s runways.
In 2010, Elora left her successful career in the fashion world to carry on the incredible work of the design-build team that created the world-renowned Green School in Bali, founded by her father John Hardy.
She reconnected with the culture and landscape that she loves and today continues to cultivate Balinese artisans alongside innovative designers and architects with the goal of making Bali a global center for sustainable design and bringing those designs to the rest of the world.
