TITIK TEMU - Shanghai Jacket
HANDLOOMED AND HAND-DRAWN BATIK
FROM SELF-GROWN INDONESIAN COTTON
IN GAJI VILLAGE, EAST JAVA
A minimalist Japanese-inspired piece for you to breeze between the changing season's weather. Fits with almost everything, the secret behind the allure of this jacket is in its subtle elbow detail and its deep pockets to keep life in order. The structured look of the handloomed raw cotton is paired with soft linen lining, providing just the right warmth for the everyday and gets softer with every wear.
This jacket took 6 months to craft by hand. Its journey begins on the field, where cotton plants are grown through monsoon season. As we enter dry season, women would come together and harvest the cotton flowers. They would sit together to take out the seeds and spin it into threads - creating a beautiful texture that is iconic of the handspinning process.
After a master weaver weaves the threads into the fabric, her apprentice takes over by hand-drawing this motif using hot wax. TITIK TEMU is the meeting point, a reminder that each and every small thing matters. When we come together, we can create something truly beautiful - and each of us has a part that is unique.
Color and pattern variations may occur and are part of the charm of this handcrafted fabric. We love that one-of-a-kind-feel!
