PAGISENJA - Structured Dress
There is beauty in simplicity. You dream of a timeless dress that you can wear from day to night, effortlessly. A dress that stands the test of time and elevates your wardrobe. You've finally found her.
WHAT TO EXPECT
- A staple in your wardrobe. She can be worn in multiple ways which keeps us needing less and getting more out of the pieces we have and love. Wear as is, unbutton halfway and combine it with our Silk Kain for formal events, or fully unbutton and wear it as an outer-vest ;)!
- So. Comfortable. Trust me. Once you feel the difference of breathable natural fabrics, you cannot go back.
- Focus on what matters in life. We don't believe in beauty pains. Or sacrificing movement just for looks. That's why this dress has deep pockets. Side slits for movement. A built in ribbon for fit. You're welcome.

Our PAGISENJA collection helps you simplify. Thoughtfully designed, they're your building blocks to a clutter-free wardrobe. Less clutter means easier life, so you have the time to pursue what matters.

It fits me well, and I am proud wearing it - it's beyond just clothing, I feel that I made some contribution.
I was instantly hooked by the unique look of the dress. I got this dress initially to wear on a gallery opening, it made me feel really cool the whole night! The high collar had this subtle modern look, but I especially LOVE how you can unbutton half of the dress to wear it as a top too because of the side slits (I may have purchased a Seribu Bunga Silk Kain before this haha). It was such a conversation starter when people commented my look, I could then tell them about the story behind it and how these master weavers made this dress just for me. Thank you for designing my favorite dress - ever!
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.
