Our Heritage

Batik is a creative medium that has been practiced for centuries, originating from Central Java, Indonesia. This ancient art form involves decorating cotton cloth with detailed motifs by using wax and coloured dyes; usually by hand. The complex dyeing process creates beautiful designs that are unique from region to region, often containing symbolism reflecting the age-old philosophies of the many Kingdoms that once dominated the archipelago. It is through our understanding of this preserved tradition, that we were influenced to develop fashion collections incorporating the cultural elements of Indonesian batik with modern style.

By understanding the evolving needs of Indonesia’s youthful consumers, our clothing lines cater to this increasingly fashion-conscious demographic that have become much more open to new interpretations of batik than in the past, and are now the new generation of trend setters. Our brand’s unique batik variants can be worn for all occasions — we regularly combine different traditional motifs — as our designers are not bound by the traditional guidelines that govern the older generations of batik craftsmen which thus enable us to have greater freedom in fabric choices as well as experiment with a richer array of colours and new dyes.
