SERIBU BUNGA River - Summer Breeze Dress
From the first moment you meet her, you feel understood. She reminds you of the moment when you felt full of joy. Like a summer breeze, she invites you to inhale when you feel like you're out of breath. To be still and see the beauty within.
WHY SHE'S SO SPECIAL
- She's really beautiful. Look closer and you'll see hidden flowers, flowing in the river currents. It was our Ibus' idea to experiment in making layers of flowers to add depth to the fabric. So they tried different ways for 1.5 months, finishing the fabric and re-batik-ing some flowers before dyeing it another 10x in our SweetIndigo vat to get this almost-black hue.
- And she makes you feel beautiful. She's a classic for a reason. Formal enough to wear to work, but perfect for every day and even weddings. This version is slightly longer, with side slits for ease of movement.
No detail is too small. Come closer and discover our mother-of-pearl button accent on the neckline. Not only does it elevate your new favorite dress, it's crafted by hand too. Oh, and pockets!
Model wears All Size. She is 165cm, EU size S.
SERIBU BUNGA is a story of renewal. You may pass through life lightly, or through a path filled with thorns and scars. But remember that it is never too late to return to the root of your heart and begin again. To bloom in the midst of change.
A motif that was forgotten as women in Gesikharjo village abandoned their tradition in search for better livelihoods. One that now blooms once more in the homes of our Ibus, each petal a bridge between the past, present and the future.

This dress is unbelievably pretty! I just really love seeing how the blue Indigo reveals itself through the cracks. So unique! The inner part of the dress is lined with an incredibly soft fabric, so it's not see through at all. It feels much more expensive than the price, my best buy this year! x
