Skulls huh? Who would of thought? Well we did.
Whilst feeling the need to do something different, that we enjoyed doing, SKULL, conceived and born in Bali, is the brainchild of Vera Ribeiro and Rhett Hutchence.
Vera had always wanted to have a skull shop. Rhett had always wanted something to do. And as these days, “Ya gotta have a concept”, SKULL was born.
Geographically SKULL is in an optimized position as the local artisans are excellent at crafting, and have a unique knack for creating objects of beauty.
After a year of sourcing materials, designing, and starting production, in mid 2013, the first SKULL store opened on Jalan Petitenget No. 99, Bali, Indonesia.
SKULL was pretty much a instant success, going on to win the 2015 Yak Award – Best Retail Space (YAK is Balis premier lifestyle magazine), and being listed in French Vanity Fair as the only store in their Top Ten Bali Locations.
With the growing buzz of SKULL Petitenget, opportunity arose to start a second store, and in late 2014, SKULL Oberoi opened.
SKULL Oberoi is the largest bricks and mortar skull store in the world, with 2 floors of over 200 square metres of groovy funky skull related products.
