Woven cloth has a deep cultural heritage in Flores. Aside from its artistic and economic value, weaving can be a key part of an artisan’s identity in the area, serving as a sign of maturity and womanhood. The Tenun Kapa Wuang motif consists of geometric shapes depicting a rhombus and two stars which symbolize a joyful life and partnership.
Batik is a traditional fabric dyeing technique in which artisans apply dye-resisting wax to create beautifully ornate designs. Now popularized worldwide, we aim to honor batik’s Indonesian origins. Each of our labels features a distinctive and culturally significant motif unique to the areas where we’ve sourced our single-origin products as an homage to the communities that make our work possible.
