KUPU - Linen Kimono
The first piece our Ibus made, as much as an icon today as 4 years ago! Wear it everytime you need a reminder to be brave. Courage is contagious.
WHY SHE'S SO SPECIAL
- You'll wanna wear her everyday. The perfect outer for the modern, mindful you. Slip between seasons comfortably in this structured beauty. Simply throw over your favorite basics and show the world what makes you truly you.
- Comfy, but not hot. Made of linen, she keeps you warm, but stays cool and breathable. Also: gets softer the more you wear her <3
- The perfect gift. Hand-drawn by mothers in Jlamprang village, she's a gift that gives back. And yes, self-gifting is totally a thing ;)
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 - and let yourself be seen.

Loving this outer, I wear it to dress up but also works in any casual setting. The burgundy works well to pop up a splash of color on any of my basic outfit. Just loving the story of the butterfly wings too, especially my go-to piece for days where I need the reminder to be brave and make my mark in this world!
Where do I even begin. I found sukkhacitta through searching for sustainable fashion brands in Indonesia and was so impressed by the entire idea and mission you guys are on. And even more..you take us on this mission too! :)
My first order was the kupu linen kimono as I thought it's so versatile and beautiful. I've worn it a lot since it arrived! The emotion is honestly hard to describe but it makes me feel really proud to wear it. The fabric is exquisit and it's so humbling to know it was made by the talented hands of the Ibus in the villages. The fabric itself becomes more soft the more it is being worn. I was surprised that it is neither too warm nor too cold...really something that can be worn for every occasion. I'm in love. Seriously. This is a piece I will treasure forever now. I'm already eyeing on my next order :) That Alunan Porcelain dress..Good Lord! Keep going, dear Sukkhacitta Team. Love, Antje
After 4 years of crushing on the black KUPU outer, I finally purchased it after Denica shared that she wears hers to give herself an boost of courage during difficult times, because I am in need of such a boost myself. In the few weeks I've had it, the KUPU outer has managed to do just that. Yes, the fabric is very comfortable and the design and craftmanship is exquisite, but it's more than clothes for me, it's a wearable talisman.
Great outer! Good quality fabric, lovely batik, works with everything I wear: dresses, pants, even as a cover while lazing around poolside. Bought it at ARA Kemang, was also impressed with the support in choosing the color. First of many SukkhaCitta's works I am buying.
Comfortable and perfect to my style
