KUPU - Silk Kain
You love getting dressed up. Especially when you can turn 1 piece into so many styles. We were amazed to hear how Javanese women used to wear Kain ("cloth") everyday! A piece we've grown to love due to its versatility with every top!
WHAT TO EXPECT
- What every girl needs. Wear it over your shoulder as a scarf, tie around your waist as a skirt, or style them as a dress. I always have one ready everywhere we go!
- Soft and luxurious. Nothing can describe the delicateness of our silk fabric on your skin.
- Finished by hand. It took 6 months for our artisan to perfect handroll stitching. 1 stitch, 1 cm at a time, taking 1 day to fully finish.
KUPU is a reminder to have courage. You were born with an innate power to create change, both in your life and in the lives of others. Be brave, even when you don't know the outcome. Break the armor - and let yourself be seen. Courage is contagious.

What if your clothes can change lives?
The truth is that every choice we make has an impact on someone’s life. We believe that for something to be truly beautiful, the system that created it must be beautiful. That's why we work hard to do the right thing. Together with you, we're changing an entire industry to be clean and inclusive for women who've been kept invisible for too long.
I hope that every time you wear your most meaningful clothes, it reminds you of the impact your choices are enabling in our villages and beyond.
