“In this exhibition, Indonesia displays wood and stone carvings, home decorations, aromatherapy such as resins and candles, as well as handicrafts from bamboo and rattan. By having good quality, these products have succeeded in attracting the attention and interest of the buyers present,” explained Rome Trade Attache Silvi Charlote Sumanti in an official statement received in Jakarta, Saturday.
Indonesia’s participation in HOMI 2021 which will take place on 5-8 September 2021 is a synergy of the Ministry of Trade through the Indonesian Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) Milan in collaboration with the Rome Trade Attaché by cooperating with the leading Italian home decoration distributor Aladdin Srl.

HOMI is an international exhibition in the field of crafts and home decoration in Italy that involves all relevant parties, from producers to distributors. At this time, HOMI 2021 featured 300 participants from 22 countries.
The founder of Aladdin Srl Massimo Vento said he was satisfied with the results of this exhibition. Indonesian products are beautiful and unique products that are rarely found in Italy, making them highly sought after and appreciated in Italy. Perlengkapan Rumah Tangga
“Market interest in root and teak wood products is very large. We still get a lot of requests even though there are some problems related to delivery,” said Massimo.
Head of ITPC Milan Sri Bimo Adhi Yudhono explained, after being hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic and a strict lockdown followed by massive vaccinations, the Italian economy is now throbbing again. This should be used by Indonesia to reach the market as one of the countries producing high quality handicrafts.
“Moreover, currently the Italian government provides discounted prices for those who build or buy houses. Thus, making the opportunity for the home decoration sector even greater,” added Bimo.
The 2021 trend in the interior design field is environmentally friendly products as well as sustainable products. Indonesian products have these two characters because they are made from natural ingredients and not from artificial materials or chemical industry products. Property New
This year, public interest in furniture and products for verandas, terraces and yards has increased sharply because many people still have to work from home.
“Since the pandemic, the lives of Italian people have changed a lot. They no longer work in offices or in companies, but work from home and many decide to turn their homes into workspaces,” concluded Bimo.
The total trade between Indonesia and Italy in the January-July 2021 period was 2.40 billion US dollars, an increase of 31.54 percent compared to the same period the previous year. Of this value, Indonesia’s exports to Italy amounted to 1.39 billion US dollars. Meanwhile, Indonesia’s imports from Italy amounted to 1.01 billion US dollars.
