Meet the people who bring life to our small social enterprise! We love what we do (even though it's hard) and want you to feel how much you matter to us! It's YOU who make all the changes we're making in our villages and beyond after all. Thank you for being part of our little family :)!
Founder & CEO
Denica is a nerd who cares. As a development economist, she saw first hand the challenges faced by women in last mile communities throughout her native Indonesia. This drove her to build a bridge, connecting you with the women who have been kept invisible for too long. Her 2 favorite things are researching and fieldtripping to meet the Ibus.
Chief Sustainability Officer
Bertram pushes the boundaries of sustainability by building partnerships to create climate positive clothes. Originally from Germany, he has spent over a decade in Indonesia. His experience working in vocational education reform has been crucial in the development of Rumah SukkhaCitta's curriculum. His favorite thing is our Ibus' homemade snacks.
Anastasia A. Setiobudi
Chief Operating Officer
Ana is the most fashionable of us all. She worked as a fashion designer in London and Bali before deciding that she wanted her work to have meaning. Now, she designs your most meaningful clothes that make our impact work in the villages possible. She is our Cece (Indonesian for big sister) and the source of all snacks in the office.
Chief of Craft
Seb's work merges innovation and heritage crafts to bring relevance to our tradition. He's responsible for developing those beautiful motifs and fabrics that make your clothes so meaningful. A practicing artist of Fine Arts, he finds purpose in creating education programs to help Indonesia's craftswomen grow.
Leonard is the visionary behind some of Indonesia's largest creative movements, such as The Goods Dept, Brightspot, and Indoestri Makerspace. He is currently dedicating his time to strengthen the national ecosystem to contribute to sustainable development as the director of SMESCO (Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs).
Chief Happiness Officer
Gita is the heart of our team!!! Her smile is one of the most heartwarming thing ever. She brings life into the office with her cute sounds and claps ever time there's a #MadeRight order (yep, triggered by you!). When asked why, she said each order gives hope. For the Ibus and everyone behind the clothes. An opportunity to keep doing good in the world.
Jawara Desa Gesikharjo
Linna dreams of a world where women are able to earn a fair income without having to leave their families. She runs Rumah SukkhaCitta Gesikharjo, our awards-winning craft schools that provide access to education to young mothers. All made possible by your purchases.
Sri keeps everything in order. From fabrics to inventory to packing, she's our wizard! No detail is too small for her. She individually checks our Ibus fabrics to make sure your clothes show the beauty of its handcrafted process. Her favorite thing is to personalize your package so you'll always remember the impact you're creating ❤️
Awan finds inspiration in human connections. He believes that seemingly mundane moments can tell a thousand stories. And he loves capturing them through photographs to share authentic lives in the villages with the world.
