Wuppy, I doubt that you will find any suitable surplus Western equipment/material in the way of sails,standing rigging in Indonesia for your Tiki. The nearest possibles are Singapore and Darwin (which are equidistant from Bali) North of Singapore is Langkawi which has a number of boat yards, chandlers etc.
One Option is once the Tiki is complete except for spars/standing rigging/ sails etc is to rig a local 'mast' out of Bamboo, plenty of bamboo on the island of Bali (make sure that it is at least 3 years old when cut from Bamboo forest, Also Rattan)
Indonesian Crab Claw sail/s
Here is some info :-
