SENJA - Structured Dress
HANDLOOMED BY MASTER WEAVERS IN
MEDONO VILLAGE, CENTRAL JAVA.
There is beauty in simplicity, and so we designed this dress dreaming of a refined silhouette that combines clean lines and a hint of nostalgia. An effortless piece that reveal the natural life, for you to wear everyday from day to night & never tire of it. Pair with our Silk Kain for a classic blend of modernity and tradition.
STORY & PROCESS
PAGI SENJA is our signature collection that is designed for you to breeze through Day and Night in. Reinterpreting Indonesia's intricate double ikat technique, it takes our weavers three weeks of preparation to tie & dye the threads before setting it on the loom. All done by hand. Once the weaving begins, they change between two shuttles, slowly creating their unique texture and lines that arises differently every time - a connection between the wearer & the weaver.
Color and pattern variations may occur and are part of the charm of this handcrafted fabric. We love that one-of-a-kind-feel!

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!
