STORY

ALUNAN. A melody of flowers that reminds you of what truly matters: Moments. Fleeting, yet eternal.

Porcelain's white marble color is achieved through 'Nembok', where the whole background of textile is covered with beeswax to create a reverse Batik outcome. 
It takes 3 days for 1 craftswoman to finish 1 fabric before it's hand-dyed in our sugar-Indigo vat. This slow process allows the deep blue to seep in through the cracks of the wax, creating a fading cloud effect that makes each Porcelain piece a true work of art.

All proceeds from this collaboration with Monita Tahalea directly contribute to our mission building Rumah SukkhaCitta Gesikharjo. A space for our artisans to come together and collaborate - but most importantly, a craft school where young craftswomen can learn the skills to thrive.
