Wearable Art jackets

June 27, 2022

The Art of Slow, artisanal bespoke luxury.

"Defined by culture, tradition and ancient techniques."

Introducing our wearable art bespoke Ikat jackets. Each jacket is One Of A Kind, representing and supporting stories of indigenous communities from the remote islands of Sumba with intricate detailing in collaboration with our Balinese Master carvers and tailors.

It takes over 52 steps to create one naturally dyed ikat textile as it takes a whole community over the course of a year to create one textile. Due to the vulnerability and remoteness of the communities ikat sales and livelihood support is scarce. With the help of our local partners in Indonesia we have been able to source, support and bring you some mesmerising textiles translated into wearable art pieces. Each textile tells a story of the community and their indigenous wisdom and beliefs that we can all learn from.

Textile  from Kambera, East Sumba.  A  bride riding a horse as a cultural symbol of traditional wedding ceremonies  in Sumba. A piece of textile expressing a sense of celebration, beauty and Pride. Reimagined with hand carved lotus flower buttons as seen on holy temples in Bali.
Textile from East Sumba, Kambera  with lion motifs. In the past textiles with wide white parts were reserved for the royal  members of the community. A regal piece reserved for the chiefs of the village.

We only produce 5 pieces per month - each piece is totally unique and made to measure for men and women. For more info please contact us here
