KUPU - Kebaya Panjang
Inspired by the iconic Javanese Kebaya, she is the bridge between the past and the present - and of the future we're building together.
WHY SHE'S SO SPECIAL
- A wardrobe classic. Finally, a Kebaya you can wear everyday. Wear buttoned as a top or open as an outer.
- Effortlessly flattering. The fitted silhouette hugs and accentuates your natural curves in all the right places.
- Real Batik Tulis piece. Each line drawn by hand with hot wax to sustain our heritage and empower women in Villages, not factories.
Sustainably made. Crafted with traceable Eucalyptus fibre that feels so light and airy. Naturally-dyed with regeneratively grown plants and agricultural waste to protect our rivers from toxic chemicals.
Phoebe wears Size 1. She is 169cm, EU Size M.
Ships January 20, 2022.
Pairs beautifully with our #ReMadeRight Belt.
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. Let yourself be seen.

Very versatile piece, I can wear it buttoned as a Kebaya top, casual with the matching Pagi travellers pants or other pants/culottes, as well as formal with skirt or kain. I like to wear it unbottoned as well for a more casual look. Easy to maintain although it's white, wash and dry easily. A very good buy, and I do prefer 'stronger' handwoven fabrics, but I love all Sukkhacitta's design and most of all, the values that underlay the whole concept of empowerment and giving back to the society and the environment. Kudos to the whole team, and the Ibus! 👍
When I see this Kebaya, it reminds me of my beloved mom, she must love the cut very much <3 Thank you for bringing such sweet memory in the most beautiful form :)))
I loved the feel and texture of my Canang dew kebaya. I put it on for my cousins wedding today and never felt super wonderful since the fabric feels totally divine. Thank you for it!!!!
So in love with my very first purchase 💖 Bahannya lembut sekali, saya sangat suka dengan warna warna earthy dari SukkhaCitta. Sangat terharu dan senang waktu pertama membuka box karena bukan hanya membeli barang cantik saja, tapi kita juga membantu kelangsungan hidup ibu ibu pengrajin di daerah.
