This will become an heirloom in my family.
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear how meaningful this piece has become for you. And how lovely to hear that you have a very special connection with Ibu S. Aminah, albeit a coincidental one!
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!!!!

But if I want to wear it for a more ceremonial or formal event, this kebaya still does wonders too! I especially love just how soft and airy the fabric feels on my skin, which feels like second skin.

I am a returning customer and I love the delicacy of the craftsmanship. This piece In particularly
