A cloth with a soul The authentic Indonesian hand-woven textile Ikat produced by local weavers are true pieces of art, woven thread by thread. It takes around 45 steps to bring life to the cloth, which can take up a month up to a year. Such as the spinning of the yarn, making the design and the dyeing of the threads. 

Stories Every Ikat cloth is unique with her own colours and designs and they a tell a story, stories about all the beautiful things in life. Read more about the stories

Family & friends All LARAS bags are made of hand-woven Indonesian Ikat textiles from local Indonesian artists. We select the cloths one by one directly from the weaver or at the traditional market. So each bag unique. Some of the cloths are family pieces, donated by my Indonesian grandma. My talented aunt Atiet who lives in Indonesia sews the bags with love and dedication.
