That’s why we travel far by plane, train, motorbike, foot (and the occassional boat) to find these craftswomen. We then invest in trainings and capacity building for at least 1 year, where she can elevate her craft and learn business skills – before we connect them with you.
With your support, we’re changing an entire industry to be more fair, clean and inclusive – one woman at the time.
Our unique model is proof that the fashion industry can solve some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental issues. And I'm here to invite you to be part of it.
Full circle of change
You make it possible for us to build a kinder, fairer world for women in villages across Indonesia.
Together, here’s how we’re changing lives:
Ending exploitation of artisans
Giving back to the Earth
That's why we hand-select our materials and dyes to make sure its as clean as can be. Knowing where and how things were made is the first step to fully quantifying our impact to achieve 100% traceability in 2020.
Our signature raw cotton fabric is handwoven by master weavers in Medono village, Central Java. Our Tencel and Sylk fabrics are from Lenzing AG, made using Eucalyptus fibres through a closed-loop facility.
Our natural dyes are 100% traceable to the farmer level.
The plants are cultivated directly by our farming coop, such as SweetIndigo™,
or reclaimed from food or industrial waste, turning pollution into beautiful hues.
Our packaging is plastic free, upcycled using our own scraps or training fabrics. Each is hand-knotted by mothers in Medono village with waste threads from our handwoven fabrics. That's why receiving your package always feel like receiving a gift from a dear friend <3!
OUR LABELS & BUTTONS
Even the little things like our buttons are from made from mother-of-pearls and supports the livelihoods of 12 women in Makassar, Indonesia. Our labels are made of 100% cotton, handmade in Jogjakarta, Central Java, Indonesia.
OUR NEXT PROJECT: INDONESIA'S FIRST TRACEABLE COTTON
For 3 years now, we've been working with a group of women farmers in Gaji village, East Java, to revitalise an indigenous cotton species. Like all good things in life, this one will take time. Stay tuned!
With every harvest, we get closer to our dream to a carbon-neutral clothes.
For a better tomorrow
This year, we’re reforesting a coastal village in North Sumatera.
With every purchase, we'll plant 1 tree on your behalf.
A breath for the Earth.
Your connection with the Earth
and all the hands in between.
to the master weaver who crafted the fabrics and his wife who make our zero-waste pouches,

From our artisans directly to you – and back to their communities. Full circle.
