Handmade: Old Traditions, Fresh Glimpse
This video was recently shot at our headquarters in Bali, Indonesia. Also named the “Island of The Gods”, Bali has a rich cultural heritage, where traditional arts and crafts play a significant role in the isle's identity. Indeed, long before it was known for yoga or wellness retreats, Bali built its reputation as a hub of skilful masters. The dominant themes of the island’s artistic traditions are skilled craftsmanship and intricacy. One of the best-known local crafts is the Indonesian batik, which involves using wax-resistant dyeing on fabric. Bali has its unique batik styles, often featuring vibrant colours and the island’s signature intricate patterns.
The Balinese intricacy shines through other local art forms, like basket weaving (known as "canang sari"), the vibrant colours and intricate designs of ceramics, and the complexity of stone or woodcarving. Across the island, you will find temples and traditional buildings featuring elaborate carvings that reflect local cultural and religious influences. Local nature, folklore, mythology or religious symbols are also big influences on traditional Balinese painting and the local silver and goldsmithing crafts.
Building on these long local traditions of art and craft, our team of skilled artisans bring their passions into your clothing. This attention to detail is what enables us to push boundaries, designing cutting-edge silhouettes and manipulating fabrics with custom-made detailing. Over the years, our team developed various in-house methods and techniques that we use to give each piece of clothing a unique character. It’s a contemporary expression of ancient local expertise. An ode to skilful craftsmanship. The result is handmade clothing that carries a special feel, look and style.
