Ikigai is a Japanese term for “purpose in life”. The creation of the jacket combines craftsmanship, creativity and nature and encapsulates ancient textile traditions combined with a timeless silhouette.
Making process: The fabric is spun and woven by local Balinese. The pattern is hand painted by me, using the ancient method batik, where hot wax is painted onto the fabric. The fabric is then delivered to my local dye partner Tarum, where it is soaked in several indigo baths. It is then delivered to Agus, who by cutting and stitching carefully, turns the fabric into a wearable piece of clothing.
Plants used for color: The blue color is derived from locally grown indigo leaves.
Material: 100% Organic cotton
The organic cotton is from our neighbor island Java, handspun and handwoven in Bali.
Care: Hand wash cold with natural detergent. Read more about how to care for your garment here.
The model is 169 cm and wears a size M. It is recommended to buy your usual size, or go one up for a more casual/oversized look.
Please note: Each garment is dyed and painted by hand, and the pattern is different in every piece. This makes every single one unique, and not two of the exact same will ever exist. The overall look is the same, but you will not receive the exact same as pictured.
PRE-ORDERS ARE ESTIMATED TO ARRIVE IN MAY.
