Story

Nusantara is an old Javanese word meaning "outer islands of Indonesia" or an Indonesian archipelago. Founded in 1980 by Steven Mustukas, starting in a small room in his humble abode in Vermont. From the early days of being stationed in Thailand to his current travels of the Far-East, Steve's mission has remained unchanged: to find unique goods produced in ways that help rather than exploit artisans in less developed countries. He believes in sharing the beauty of the East with those in the West.

Steve has traveled to over 35 countries and travels frequently to Indonesia, Thailand, India, and Nepal to continue his quest for the exotic and unusual. Nusantara has over 50,000sf of warehouse space (to the trade only) filled with amazing vintage and Antique items from all over Southeast Asia. These goods will be transported continuously to the new Flagship store in Essex. Nusantara prides themselves on the fact that they work directly with the artisans and their families supporting incredibly talented and wonderful people from Southeast Asia.
