Casa Vintage originally opened in Sweden in 2007 run by, Nathalie Qwick. Originally a space, operating in an old brewery, redesigned to hold customers of vintage clothing, art and food. In 2010 the store moved to the tropical paradise island - Gili Trawangan in Indonesia.
We have now evolved into a creative space where you can sit and work with your laptop, eat a nice breakfast, meet friends for a lunch on the roof top or hangout in our upstairs terrace bar and watch the world go by. We play relaxing music and sometimes have parties on the roof top when there are talented DJ’s on the island.
The walls are decorated with memories from travels last summer in Europe. Visiting friends in Copenhagen, strolling around in Christiania’s art museum, beautiful souvenirs were found that now hang on the walls of the restaurant. When I was in Amsterdam I also visited The Van Gogh museum and picked up some prints to bring with me home to Gili Trawangan. They were suppose to hang on my walls at home, but have ended up on the walls at Casa Vintage also.
In August 2018, we went through several earthquakes and Casa Vintage was badly damaged. We spent many months renovating the place and it has now transmuted into something even more special and beautiful than it was before. All the memories from this summer inspired me to change as a person but also to change this space into something more creative and more from the heart.
This is what we believe
Spreading the awareness of eco conscious production, recycling, reusing by changing or re-designing certain pieces a bit and seeing the value in something old is one of our most important set of values. The concept of Casa Vintage Living goes hand in hand with doing what you can out of what you’ve got to contribute to a healthier world and inspire others to do the same. We are a no plastic business and that’s why we use textile bags, papaya straws and sell no water by the bottle.
Upstairs above our restaurant you will find the Casa Vintage Living shop, full of male and female vintage clothing. hats, sunglasses, bags and silver and gold jewellery from all around the world. Come inside and try out our lovely kimonos and linen shirts or relax on our rooftop bar and watch the world go by.
